Unit 1: Positive Relationships for Children's Care, Learning and Development P1: There are many ways that you can develop relationships with children. While I have been at my placement I have seen many ways, by simple getting down to the child's level, having a smile and a happy atmosphere. Relationships need to be built between pupil and teacher/TA and between themselves. At the beginning of new school year the teacher gets information about all the children, this is called a pre-report. The teacher will have information on the children's friends, there likes/dislikes, pets, family (brothers and sister), and allergies. At the school I am in this is how they have been developing the relationships: 1. Registration time. At registration time the teacher calls out the name of each child and the pupil will answer. Then two children take the register to the office. This promotes the relationship with the teacher and pupil because all children are involved. This will make the children feel part of the setting. This will also get the child and teacher communicating. 2. Play time and lunch time. At play time/lunch time the children get to eat their food and go out in the playground. This promotes relationship between the pupils, as they get time to play together. To get to know each other. They get to eat their lunch together and discuss different aspects of the day. 3. Golden time. At golden time the children get to choose what activity they want to do. ...read more.


It is also important for me to be reflective when communicating with adults and this will help me to check that I have full understanding on what to do. By communicating with the adults and asking questions about how they would like me to support throughout the daily routine, this will enable me to have discussions with staff members and be able to achieve activities with the children. M1: Communicating is very important in developing relationships with children. It is important to have good communication so that the children feel comfortable to talk to you. If you communicate well with children it will boost their self esteem. It is also important for the children to see that they have a good role model, so they see the teacher talking to other adult respectably; this will show the children how to communicate well. In my placement I find if you show interest in the children this is a good start to developing relationship, it will also boost their self esteem and self worth. It will make them feel that you listen to them and take interest in what they do, this will give them confidence. I also find that if you support the children throughout the daily routine it will help develop relationship with the children. Example from my placement: The teacher ask the pupils a question and some children know the answer but have not got the confidents to put their hands up, so I sit on the floor with them and ask the child to whisper in my ear. ...read more.


I talk in a steady pace so they can understand me and, so it does not sound like I am trying to rush the conversation, that I am nervous or that I don't want to talk to them. My posture would change I would stand up straight. I would look confidence, alert and interested. Through the day of my placement I have to talk to many staff. This will be the time I get there till the time I leave. When I arrive at my placement I say hello to the office staff and sign into the book. I walk through a number of class and say hello to all the teacher and T/A in them. I sometime have to use the photo copier I go to the office and while I am photo copying I talk to office staff. I also talk to them if I need some resources. I talk to the parent when they drop their children off in the morning, I will also direct them when need to the teacher if they have any issue. Gill Squire says, 'You need to communicate effectively with adults in your work role because the children need you all to work together in the interests of their well-being. Children pick up very quickly on poor relationships and communication between the important adults in their lives, and will become unsettled and anxious if they sense tension and discord.' By adults communicating well with everybody this can achieve full understanding of what is happening throughout the daily routine. This will also support a calm, daily procedure and aid good professional practice, which will make an environment that support children's learning and development. ...read more.
