Introduction

Visit 1 Date: 2nd August Time: 16.30 Duration: 30 minutes Age of child: 1 year 1 month Where: Ruby's house Who present: me, Ruby and Ruby's mum. Aim: I will assess Ruby's intellectual and social development by making baby lambs out of paper. Expectations Physical development: Most of this activity will be sitting down so I don't expect to see many examples of gross motor skills. I except to see more Fine Manipulative Skills when picking things up and sticking them down on the body of the sheep. I expect to Ruby to be able to stretch out to pick up things. I expect her to point with her index finger to things she wants. According to Pamela Minnet she should be able to "use her hands to throw things and point with index finger to objects she wants" at Ruby's age. Intellectual development: I expect that Ruby won't be able to say black and white but be able to know they are different colours and be able to show for preference and point to black/white when asked. ...read more.

I choose making baby lambs because I had most of the materials needed. I bought the few remaining items I needed and collected the rest. I cut the templates for the sheep out before the visit so I didn't need to take scissors. I also didn't take anything that was unsuitable for Ruby's age. The glue was child friendly. Observation When I arrived Ruby has been at nursery and was having a wash, as she was a little dirty. When she was all dry I set up with Ruby on my knee while Deborah got some juice and chopped grapes. Ruby walked towards the grapes and picked one up when Deborah had put them on the floor. She offered me the grape. I told Deborah what we where doing who told Ruby "we're going to be doing sheep". When Ruby saw the sheep templates she pointed at them with her index finger. ...read more.

Conclusion

Intellectual Development: I was right in expecting that Ruby couldn't say black or white but when I asked her to point to white she did. She followed the instructions I gave her until she got bored and she recognized that it was a sheep once we had finished it. She also knew what noise a sheep made. She should be able to know this because according to Pamela Minnet "babies first words are nearly always labels for people, animals or things". As seen in my introductory visit when Ruby says "baa-baa" it normally means sheep. Emotional Development: Ruby didn't show any negative emotion like I predicted. She got bored in the middle of the activity and walked off. She also gave me a hug the end. This was normal for some-one of Ruby's age as Mary D Sheridan says in her book " shows affection to familiar people". Social Development: I was right about Ruby's social development. She was co-operative. Even when she walked off she still made the sheep even though we had to go to her which is expected for age because as stated before she obeys simple instructions. ...read more.
