Unit 2: development from conception to age 16 years
The first activity that I am going to reflect upon is where I planned an activity for children. It was a physical activity which would help their sensory development, this activity was the colouring a piece of card in with crayons and sticking the same colour items onto it for a giant Elma the patchwork elephant. This was a team effort where all the children joined together into making a giant Elma.
I helped to encourage this by gathering the materials of different colours and textures like match sticks and feathers and telling them the work looks great and giving them positive feedback. I made sure there were more than enough different types of items for each child. I encourage the children to put on aprons to protect their clothes. I also made the table was properly covered and at it was at a sensible height for all children. I helped them out by showing them different items and asking them their opinion, giving them confidence so that they will be more creative and go all out on their designs.
