Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Unit 7 - Children's Learning Activities and Play Task 1 The way children learn is through play, children's development takes place by different stages of learning. Children learn through the stages one by one, each stage follow on from the next. They are natural stages of development for children as they grow older. There are many types of play, which are: * Symbolic Play usually occurs from 1years of age. It includes role play, pretend play, socio-dramatic play and imaginative play. Symbol is when one thing stands of another. * Pretend Play or Ludic Play is when an action or object is given a symbolic meaning which is different from real life. * Role Play occurs when pretend symbols are used together. * Socio-dramatic Play is when several children role play and pretend play together. * Imaginative Play is when children use their own real-life experiences and rearrange them. * Fantasy Play is when children role play situations they do not known about but which might happen to them one day. * Phantasy play is when children role play unreal events using characters from cartoons on TV. * Manipulative Play occurs when children use and celebrate physical prowess. ...read more.

Bruner also believed that children need adults to support them as they move through the different stages. I have research on all 5 theorists above, I have look at their theory and I believe that in different parts of all 5 theorist theories, as some part is relevant to children development in some way or another. In my placement I can relate to Pavlov theory as at the end of play time the teacher blows her whistle and counts to 5, while the children are stopping what they are doing and give the teacher 5. By the time the teacher has counted to 5 the child should all be standing still, but what I have notice is that when the teacher blows her whistle and counts to 5, the children stop what they are doing and give the teacher 5 before the teacher has counted to 5, normally when the teacher has got to 3 - 4. This shows that the children were conditioned to stand still when the teacher blow the whistle and counted to 5. I can relate to skinners theory because when I was at my placement with the babies, a child would not eat his lunch. ...read more.
