LITTLE "B" BECOMING MORE MOBILE!

Little "B" has started to walk! She has been so close for a few weeks now and has been slowly building up her confidence.
She is really enjoying making her way around the house and joining the older children in their play. This is not always welcomed by the older children... especially when she crawls off with a doll or knocks down a tower., but on the whole they love having her join in with their play and give her a role in their role play games.

Early years Outcomes- 
 Physical Development (Moving and handling) 8-20 months 
  • Takes first few steps independently. 
Personal, Social and Emotional Development (Self-confidence and self-awareness) 16-26 months
  • Explores new toys and environments, but ‘checks in’ regularly with familiar adult as and when needed. 

We have started to get a lot of tummy showing!
"Where's you tummy gone?" and up comes the top!
She also holds the top up and smiles at me waiting for me to tickle her tummy so that she can giggle and cover it up again. When I move away, she repeats the actions and makes vocal sounds and holds my attention by making eye contact. Waiting and communicating to me that she wants me to do it again.

Early years Outcomes- 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development (Self-confidence and self-awareness) 8-20 months 
  •  Enjoys finding own nose, eyes or tummy as part of naming games. 
  •

  • Laughs and gurgles, e.g. shows pleasure at being tickled and other physical interactions. 
  • Uses voice, gesture, eye contact and facial expression to make contact with people and keep their attention. 




Now she is more mobile she enjoys following toys around the floor. Especially cars and balls. Sometimes she squeals and looks to others around her to push the toy back to her. Engaging them in her play.

Early years Outcomes-

She is loving the freedom that comes with her new walking. She has started to spend time in the garden, exploring a more natural environment and is loving watching the chickens and trying to stroke them when they fly out of their run.

Early years Outcomes- 

Understanding the world (The world) 8-20 months
  • Closely observes what animals, people and vehicles do. 
  • .




She is able to be more involved with the other children in the setting and works hard to get their attention.


LEARNING INTENTIONS AND IDEAS FOR EXPANDING LEARNING:

  • This observation was made to assess how little "B"'s new found mobility has effected her current developmental level in Physical Development, Personal, Social, Emotional Development and how she is interacting more with the world around her.
I will offer more opportunities for outdoor play and giving her the space to explore and move using her whole body. I will provide more toys that can be moved around the house such as dolls buggies, wheel barrows, pull along toys and balls to encourage movement and walking.


CHARACTERISTICS OF EFFECTIVE LEARNING:
Little "B" is active and involved in her play and likes to join others who are playing near her. She is social and keen to engage others in what she is doing. Her new found mobility has given her the freedom to explore new spaces and reach things that were previously out of reach. She can find out about her environment and explore things more hands on. She likes to climb on things to reach items that she can see but that are not within her grasp. She Thinks critically and problem solves so that she can get to these things. Making her own choices and learning through trial and error. 

Today's play, meets the following EYFS Prime and specific areas
  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Understanding the world
