Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

This is a good start to an essay though it only covers a very small area of development in a child. There is little discussion of social or emotional development but physical skills are covered in a greater detail.

I feel that the work could be enhanced by a little research into areas of development, particularly that regarding intellectual development and Piagetarian theory.
