Introduction

Cache Diploma in Child Care and Education Evaluation My observation took place during the PE lesson. The hall was set up with four mats and four benches. The children began with stretching exercises and played 'islands' following instructions from the class teacher. The game islands involves the children moving around the hall in a variety of ways eg. Hopping, skipping, balancing on beams, running, jogging, running on tip toes as directed by the teacher, then jumping onto a mat when the teacher shouts, 'sharks' . B generally displayed good physical skills during my observation, He was able to dress and undress easily which is an important physical skill to help children become independent. This independence helps children to become confident which will help in all area's of their development. He also showed good flexibility as he was able to touch his toes keeping his legs straight. ...read more.

My conclusion from my observation and from the norms I observed is that B's physical developmental stage is at the expected stage for a child of his age, and he is also practising and mastering some of the skills listed for a child of 6 yrs. As B is 5.5 he now needs support and developmental appropriate activities which will help him to consolidate skills and move him onto the next stage.

The observation outlined that B has difficulty with hopping and skipping. ...read more.

Conclusion

Then when the music stops stand like a statue. This variation of the traditional game could be altered to practice other skills which children in the class may need practice in such as hopping. By joining in with the game and encouraging the children they will have a good role model to follow and enjoy themselves too. Repetition of the game 'islands' could also be repeated. The children enjoyed the game and it provided the opportunity to practice and master a lot of physical skills. Cache Diploma in Child Care and Education Evaluation Personal learning The tick list observation did provide a quick indication to what stage child B had reached in his physical development. I don't think I would have been able to record as much information if I had used another method such as a free-description as I would not have been able to record much information and I might easily have lost where child B was if I was trying to write all the information down. ...read more.
