Introduction

Date of visit: 18th July 2005 Time of visit: 12. 30 - 14.00 Age: 4 years and 7 months Place: Local Park People present: Aysia and me Aims: Today, I'm going to take Aysia to a bigger park, where there will be many children around her, so I want to see how she reacts with other children and see if she communicates with them and talk to them, or does she ignore them and just play alone (solitary play) because she is either shy or wants to do her own things. I'm also going to see if Aysia has any major skills that she is good at like balancing and skipping and running and climbing up the fake walls in the park (gross motor skills) and then co-ordination of using her arms and legs along the ropes and see can she use her own imagination and do things by herself. Expectations: I expect that Aysia will be able to run, jump, hop and skip, walk along a beam, enjoy climbing and sliding down the slide. ...read more.

She then played on the see saw with another girl on the other side, but she knew the girl from primary school so she had a friend there that she was communicating with. She then went on the roundabout, I pushed her round on it and when she got dizzy she asked me to stop. She then wanted to go for a kick about in the park with her friend so she started to kick the ball about the park with her friend and it was as though she forgot I was there, she was happy playing with her friend though. I was talking to her friends mum about her little girl and asking how often she brings her here to the park etc. Aysia then got fed up with doing that and she wanted to go home, so we walked home and when we got home she started to play with her toys and it wasn't long before she fell asleep. It shows that taking her to the park and letting her do her own things makes her tired and then she will sleep. ...read more.

Conclusion

She can even use co-ordination and kick a ball in a straight line, and she knows to place her foot at the side of the ball and which ever way her foot next to the ball is facing is the way the ball will go, this shows that when people tell her things she remembers them and then she can explain them to other people. She told me her dad taught her this. Evaluation: Aysia was well behaved on this visit to the park and I think with her friend being there was a boost upwards to build up her confidence even more because otherwise she would off been shy. She was quite clingy when we got there as she felt uncomfortable around other children but then when she saw her friend she was fine. When I was listening to Aysia and her friend they have the same type of skills both like the same things and both seem, at the same stage off development, the one thing I did notice about Aysia's friend was that she seemed to have a speech problem she didn't pronounce all her words correctly compared to how Aysia pronounced hers. ...read more.
