Introduction

D1: Social development means the way in which people begin to develop and build on relationships with there personal, professional lives. The Majority of the children aged 4 usually should be able to know which gender they are. The child should be able to interact with others there age group, they should be able to participate in activities. Children aged 4 usually their speech becomes more clear. Some children at the age of 4 have their opinions early to things and they know there likes and dislikes. Children this age should be able to develop a quantity of everyday words .Social development also means when the child learns what behaviour is acceptable and expected in setting e.g. during snack time ,they can be taught how to share and wait for their meal to be given without hassle which builds up there socializing skills. D2: The main aspects of social developed that children aged 5 years old achieve is Friendship-meeting and choosing their friends that match them and may have similar personalities and may have similar hobbies e.g. tom- do you like tom & jerry tom replied yes its my favour jimmy replied mine to. Dislikes and likes-they should be able to know the activities they enjoy and don?t enjoy and know what subjects they like and don?t like e.g. sashay- I like maths because I like numbers and I am good at numbers.

Middle

What us parishioner should do to help a child going through transition 1. They should sit down with the child and have a one to one conversation, so that the child can really open up and express there feeling a how they feel. 1. Set up different activities to help the child to socialise with others and build up their self-esteem .you mite want to do this because the child may not talk much, so the best way is to use different objects or things in the activity. 1. Find out the child?s likes and dislikes, so you can have an idea about what the child?s is all about and the kind of person they are B1: Describing the ways practitioners can support children through transition What practitioner can do to support children through transitions? -They should sit down with the child and have a one to one chat [they should emphasize the child?s needs and feelings], so that the child can open up the emotional feelings because children often do not like to express their emotions to a several amount of people and also talk to the child about what they like and what they dislike, so that us parishioners can put it into consideration and make changes to fit the child?s needs. -Set up activities that will build up the child?s self-esteem (confidence). you mite want to do this because the child may not talk much, so the best way is to use the different objects or things in the activity. E.g. set up an activity like circle time for each child to express their feelings. -Reassure the children, the families and the people who are involved are kept updated and they know what?s happening. Make up a routine. E.g. if a child is being observed make sure the guardian of the child knows every thing that is being done. -Make sure the safety of the child is always put first and that every child is included no matter the circumstance because it will make the child feel unsafe and unloved because it may lead to the child?s behaviour to change. ...read more.

Conclusion

This enables secure base level for the child to be working at. When children develop from age to age their routines will tend to change. For example if a child of 4years is doing a activity including cutting and gluing they may be using plastic scissors and they will change to metal scissors as they get older. Another example is when the child has an eating pattern it may change and they will be hungry and a different time. Their learning opportunities will rise as they get older because they will be learning new skills and they will be able to learn things longer as they grow up. For example if a child of 5 years can only learn up to 20mins then when they are about 7 to 8 years old they will be able to learn for longer like 30mins+. Negative side of routines Routines do not always go to plan they can overtake its time limit or not last long that is why you should make observations and estimate how long the child can do a certain activity for. Therefore realistic timings should be made, because some young children who take naps tend to be unsteady when they wake up from a nap. So more time would be needed for waking them up and they will need time to be active again. Evaluation My evaluation is that care routines are a positive way to handle a child because you know the time of when are where to do things. They enable you to do different things and also give the child activities and different genres of things to do in their day. You will also build up a relationship with the child and Learn to know what they are like. However care routines don?t always go to plan because time can overlap or a certain activity or job may not take as long as you thought, as a result to this estimated time must be written down carefully ...read more.
