Introduction

Final Evaluation (PIES) Physical Development Since I began my visits in September Ben has put on 4.5kg in weight from weighting 14kg and now 18kg according to Pamela Minett text book he was slightly underweight in September but is now the average weight for a child aged four and 6 months quotes Pamela Minett in her text book. Ben eats very well and healthy his weight is no cause concern to his parents. At the start of my visits Ben was 102 cms tall and 104 cms tall this again is the norm for a child bens age according to the tables in Jennie Patterson's "studying childhood book". Bens fine manipulative skills and eye co-ordination is at a very high standard, it has been improving weekly, in the early part of the visits Ben was able o use a fine pincer grip to hold a pencil but he did not have perfect control, Ben is now able to show me a mature pincer grasp. Ben now has good control of pens, pencils and paintbrushes this is the average for a five year old according to "Valda Reynolds". In the early ages Ben's hand eye co-ordination was quite good when trying to complete puzzles by visit 4 he was confidently able to use small pieces of Lego skillfully. Ben's gross motor skills were very good at the beginning of my studies; Ben could walk, run, jump and catch a ball very well. ...read more.

In conclusion Ben is quite an intelligent child he is at the right stage of development and has plenty of room for improvement; Ben has impressed me very much in this category. Emotional Development Ben has shown me lots of different emotions during the six visits. He has shown me excitement when he talks about his past experiences. Ben unfortunately has shown me more negative emotions then positive this is not very good. Bens main negative emotions was jealousy, Ben gets very jealous if I were to praise another child on doing good work, Ben would start a tantrum and in some worse cases he would hit the other child, Ben has an anger problem and has to learn to control it, being jealous is a problem but it is only normal but I seriously recommend Ben doing something about it, Ben is not a sad person he is very happy and easily enjoys himself. Ben did not only show me negative emotions there were also many positive, I have seen Ben laugh, be happy, smile, have fun, enjoy himself, being caring and being excited. Ben acts and try's to be very brave, in visit 3 we were talking about his room he told me that he sleeps in his room in the complete dark I thought he might be scared but he told me he is not scared of the dark at all and he like it this was unusual, this is not the norm quotes "Bruce and Meggit" they describe 3-5 year olds being "easily afraid for example in the dark". ...read more.

Conclusion

This activity turned out to be very useful, I predicted that the majority of the class will be at the normal stage of development for there age, my prediction were again proven correct the majority of the class are at the right stage of development and are learning and playing at the norm for there age. In visit 4 I wrote a questionnaire to my child's parents to find out where he goes to play in his private time, this was possible the most useful activity of them all I found out where he likes to play, what's his favorite place and how often he goes there, my predictions was that he would be very lucky and get taken to a lot of different places and visit them regularly, yet again my prediction was proven correct. In visit 5 I did an activity which involved an interview with bens mother, the interview consists of questions about bens social skills, I felt this would be very important as social skills has a lot to do with play and I wanted to have a better idea on how interested Ben is making friends and how he plays with them. My FARS activity took over almost all my 6 visits, in conclusion I am very happy with the out come, I now know a lot about physical play and how children play, my background research helped me tremendously is gave me ideas on games to play. I did research to find out what games are favorites for children and what ways children like to play. 1 ...read more.
