Introduction

Name of child: Aysia Chopra Date: 24th March 2005 Time: 3.30pm - 4.30pm Age: 4 years 3months old Place: Aysia's home People present: Aysia, her friend, me and her father Aims: I am going to observe Aysia's play and social skills. To achieve this I am going to play the game "snap" with Aysia and her friend Aaliyah. Also I am going to observe Aysia's intellectual skills by seeing if Aysia recognises specific colours and numbers. Expectations: I expect that Ayisa will get the hang of playing "snap" easily and will wait for her turn patiently. It says in the GCSE child development CGP the revision guide age 4: "the child is sociable, friendly, affectionate and can share, but is independent and self - willed." I expect Aysia to be able to do this, as she is usually average at social development. I also believe she will recognise most colours and numbers. Observations: When I arrived at Aysia's home she recognised me but sat on the chair and just smiled she seemed a bit shy because she hadn't seen me in a long while. ...read more.

Middle

She is very friendly, loving, and well mannered child. She is very active and loud when she feels comfortable, but there's also a quiet side to her as she was very tired after and had to have her comfort toy, her "cuddly bunny rabbit teddy". Emotional Development: Aysia is a very cheerful, lively and very friendly child. She did not get jealous of others and wasn't angry just disappointed when she'd lost a game and wanted to play on so that she could have a chance to win. She also behaves very well and is very polite. She is a very happy child and enjoys the company of other people; she smiled a lot through out this visit. Social Development: Aysia's social development was good as she acknowledged taking turns when playing the game 'Snap'. She also interacts very well with other children too; it says in the GCSE child development CGP the revision guide age 4: "the child is sociable, friendly, affectionate and can share, but is independent and self - willed." ...read more.

Conclusion

I expected that Aysia would get the hang of playing 'snap' easily and would wait for her turn patiently. It says in the GCSE child development CGP the revision guide age 4: "the child is sociable, friendly, affectionate and can share, but it's independent and self - willed." I expected Aysia to be able to do this, as she is usually average at social development. I also think she will recognise most colours and numbers. This proved correct due to my observations. I was able to study the aspects of Aysia's development which I wanted to, on this visit. I observed her social skills when playing with other children and I think her skills are quite developed for a child her age. I also got to observe her intellectual development, colour and number recognition which I was very impressed by. I learned that children at the age of 4 are able to co-operate as I thought she would argue with me and would have seemed spoilt but she was very kind. ...read more.
