Introduction

E5 - Observation I undertook my observation on A for 45 minutes, while he was part of morning free play session. A was sitting on the floor with his legs crossed and both of his arms crossed and placed in his lap. The teacher told them that they can now go to take part in the free play session. A quickly got up stood on both feet and gazed around on what activities have been set up for them. He stood still for about 10 seconds and then he walked towards the creative table, where there was a paint activity set up. A picked up a red apron with his right hand. He put his right arm into the apron first then he put his left arm into the apron. He asked one of his friends to fasten his apron from the back. Then he helped his friend to fasten his apron. He then moved towards the paint activity table. With his right hand he picked up a large paint brush. A then dabbed the brush into the blue paint palate. Next moving the paint brush slowly towards the white A3 sized paper, A then dabbed the paint brush onto the paper three times. Forthwith A rubbed the paint that was dabbed on the paper for about 30 seconds. ...read more.

As I was observing A during the free play session I noticed that he was extremely helpful and caring towards his peers. A was really confident in choosing the weaving activity which was new to him. And also A displayed high levels of involvement in the three activity's that he chose to do. But we do have to remember that all children develop differently form each other. A is 4:6 years old and the Early Years Curriculum stepping stones states "show increasing independence in selecting and carrying out activities" (2000, pg32). This is the blue area stepping stone and this is usually expected to happen around A's age. This shows me that A is on the right track for Personal and Social development. Also the Early Years Curriculum stepping stones states "be confident and try out new activities" (2000, pg32). A was confident during my observation when he was trying out an activity new to him which was weaving. This statement is from the grey section of the Early Year Curriculum and this is meant to happen right at the last stage of foundation stage, and A is only 4:6 years. This shows me that A is advanced in a part of his personal and social development. The Early years curriculum also states "talk freely about their home and community" (2000, pg34). ...read more.

Conclusion

So now you can see that my observation has been effective for my supervisors weekly planning. Resubmission C1 I have looked Albert Bandura's Social learning theory for my personal and social development observation. For my first recommendation made in E8 it consists the A to be imaginative and look at others to form ideas. Bandura (1977) states: "Learning would be exceedingly laborious, not to mention hazardous, if people had to rely solely on the effects of their own actions to inform them what to do. Fortunately, most human behaviour is learned observationally through modelling: from observing others one forms an idea of how new behaviours are performed, and on later occasions this coded information serves as a guide for action." [Online]Available at: <http://tip.psychology.org/bandura.html> This statement made by Albert Bandura supports my recommendation because Albert Bandura statement says that children learn through socialising and this specific statement I got above says that children get ideas from other children and this supports my first recommendation. Because A will be going to a drama club and getting ideas from other children. My second recommendation made in E8 is also supported by Albert Bandura's Social learning theory because my second recommendation consists A to interact with other children while working in a group, and in a part of Albert Bandura's Social learning theory it says "children learn by interacting" (Online) Available at: <http://tip.psychology.org/bandura.html>. So as you can see that both of my recommendations made in E8 are supported by Albert Bandura's Social learning theory. ...read more.
