Introduction

Date of visit: 10th May 2005 Time: 6pm - 7pm Age: 4years 5months Place: Aysia's house People present: Aysia and I Aim of visit: Today I'm going to observe Aysia when making Tom & Jerry cakes. I'm going to be looking at her intellectual development when I'm telling her instructions. I am also going to be looking at her, social skills, to see how she communicates with me. I'm also going to look at her physical skills in making the cakes in particular her fine motor skills. Emotional development comes into it slightly in her confidence and ability to cope with a new situation. Expectations: I think she will understand what she has to do. I think she will stand and listen to what she is told to do. ...read more.

Middle

When we were ready to put them in the oven she counted how many we had made. I'd opened the oven and she'd felt the heat of the oven and told me to make sure I had gloves on or I'd get burnt. Aysia asked could we make them again one day, so this shows that she enjoyed making them. She is good at using her hands and co-ordinating with hands, fingers and brain. I told her that they will be 10minutes to cook and she told me when 10miniutes had gone, so this proves that she has a good sense of maths and numbers. I explained to her though that they will be ready when the big finger reaches a certain number on the clock. ...read more.

Conclusion

Physical Development: Aysia used her fine manipulative skills in baking the cakes, as she was mixing very fast and picking up the pictures of Tom and Jerry to spreading the icing on the cakes. Evaluation: I was practically correct in my expectations because I know Aysia pretty well now and have made a good bond with her so I know what I expect from her. She was well behaved like I said she would be in the expectations. She likes to bake cakes and she has asked me could we do them again. She was more excited then I expected her to be and I think that was because it was her first time to make them and she knew that she could eat them afterwards and she enjoyed eating them. I think the toy kitchen in her bedroom had encouraged her to want to do it for real life. ...read more.
