The aim of the curriculum plan is to demonstrate how a 10 month old baby's learning and development can be promoted

Extracts from this document...


Curriculum Plan Introduction E1: This is a plan to show how I can plan and carry out appropriate activities or experiences for a baby aged 10 months. The plan will be implemented in a home setting and I will take into consideration anti-bias/ discriminatory practice. Aim E2: The aim of the curriculum plan is to demonstrate how a 10 month old baby's learning and development can be promoted through an area of play. The selected area of play is sensory play. The Birth to Three Matters states "Development Matters: babies explore their immediate environment of people, objects and feelings through all their senses" A Competent Learner, Being Creative (2003). I will be providing activities for E to explore through his senses. E3: The curriculum plan will be carried out over a period of 6 weeks. E4: Sensory play activities for a baby 10 months of age. * Shape sorter - This activity is bright and colourful. It will have 4 different shapes, and a shape sorter bucket to put the shapes into. * Peek-a-boo activity- This activity will include a red blanket and a small teddy bear. * Sensory Activity cube- This activity cube will have 6 different sides and each side will have something sensory.

I have looked at Jean Piaget for my theorist for my activity. Jean Piaget said that "children are active learners" [Online] Available at: <http://www.sk.com.br/sk-piage.html> this part of what was said by Jean Piaget supports both of my recommendations, because both of my recommendations consist E to be active. Because my first recommendation is to pick small pieces of biscuits and here E will be active. My second recommendation consist E to be active because he will be stacking some cubes. So you can see that my first and second recommendations are supported by Jean Piaget's statement. I think that what Jean Piaget said is correct because in my point of view children learn when they are active. By looking into detail about what Jean Piaget believed in, Teena Kamen states in her book that Jean Piaget believed that "children are actively involved in structuring their own cognitive development through exploration of their environment. Children need real objects and concrete experiences to discover things for themselves" (2000, pg96). This statement made by Teena Kamen about what Jean Piaget believed supports my recommendations. Because a part of the statement made by Teena Kamen says that "children need real objects and concrete experiences to discover things for themselves" (2000, pg96), and in my first and second recommendation E will be having a concrete experience by picking up small bits of biscuits and stacking cubes. Both of my recommendations made are supported. In addition I have looked at B.F Skinner to support my recommendations. B.F Skinner stated "positive reinforcement is more precise than that of reward" [Online] Available at: <http://www.psy.pdx.edu/PsiCafe/KeyTheorists/Skinner.htm#Research > this statement made by B.F Skinner also supports my recommendations. Because as part of my recommendations, E's mother has to encourage E with positive reinforcement. This statement shows us that how important positive reinforcement is, as it says positive reinforcement is more precise than rewards. Positive reinforcement can benefit any child. ...read more.


Also he demonstrated his fine motor skills by opening and closing the whit chunky zip on the cube. His sensory development has been promoted because he was looking, touching, tasting the sensory cube. E was also listening to the music on the cube. So the learning outcomes for E were met. Learning outcomes set were also met successfully because E demonstrated this by showing confidence in discovering new things on the cube sides. Also E evidently demonstrated his capability in fine manipulative skills as he poked and pulled the sensory activity cube. My learning has also been effectively met by implementing this detailed activity plan. Because now I know more about what E likes and dislikes. It has also increased my knowledge about The Birth to Three matters and how it used. I have also learnt how to adapt activities, as I had to adapt this activity because E had lost interest in it. I now have more knowledge on a variety of activities and I know what area of development is promoted by these activities. Overall this detailed activity plan has been effective. D2 This resource has been effective because when I placed it in front of E, he was fascinated and he gazed at it for a couple of minutes. The sensory activity cube supported E development because it gave him a chance to develop his gross and fine motor skill. This resource also gave him the chance to progress his hand eye co-ordination. This resource also encouraged E to practice and refine his gross and fine motor skills. The sensory activity cube had mirrors which gave E the chance to see who he is and what he looks like. This resource was also effective in promoting E's language development, because the resource had music and this encouraged E to babble along with it. Overall this resource has effective in supporting E's development and also the learning outcomes that were set for E. ...read more.
