Transcript of 3.2 Explain how theoretical perspectives relating to child d

Describe theoretical perspectives
Explain the relationship between the perspective and the frameworks.

In 30 seconds - name as many theorists as you can

Choose 3 of your theorists - make a spider diagram
to show what you know about each one.
Write down all the ares of learning and development within the EYFS and the national curriculum for Key Stage one.

Link any of the areas together
How theoretical perspectives impact on current practice
Piaget - knowing his 4 stages can help to inform planning.
If a practitioner understands ego centrism it will help to support the understanding of the practitioner in situations - such as a child taking another's toy.
The practitioner can plan activities to develop theories such as conservation
There are 7 areas of learning and development. What are they?
3 are prime, what are they? What are the other areas called?
Children have an assessment check between the ages of 2 -3 years.
Current Frameworks
The EYFS plans to work in partnership with parents, providing equal opportunities and a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities, which are planned around the needs and interest of each individual (EYFS 2012)
The EYFS recognises that each child is unique.
That they learn thorugh positive relationships
In enabling environments
And that they all learn in different ways and at different rates.
Discussion Cards
Match the theorist's name to the theory...
Be able to explain your ideas.

Vygotsky's More Knowledgable Other role is the practitioner.
So a practitioner should consider when to intervene to support a childs learning and development of a new skill.

Remember Vygotsky said that the child learnt from the more knowledgeable other, until they could do that task themselves.
3.2 Explain how theoretical perspectives relating to child development inform current frameworks.
The National Curriculum
The importance of physical development is recognised by the revised EYFS, physical development is one of the prime areas.
It says that children should be active but also interactive and opportunities should be provided for them to develop coordination, control and movement.
EYFS promotes healthy choices and children making these decisions
The youngest children - practitioners should promote the 3 prime areas
Emphasising playing, exploring and active learning.
The curriculum needs to be balanced and broadly based which promotes spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development.

PE is one of the 9 foundation subjects - it promotes a variety of physical activities over a sustained period of time.
A chance to compete and lead healthy lives.
One of 7 areas is Communication and Language.
KS2 Children must learn a foreign language
Section 6 of the National curriculum is Language and Literacy and is broken down into spoken language, reading and writing and vocab development.

The English programme of study at Key Stage 1 is set out year by year - which allow for a rapid pace of development and understanding
PSE development is the other prime area.
2 of the 4 overarching principles of the EYFS fall
into this.
'every child is unique, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self assured.
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
It also states that: PSE development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themsleves and others to form positive realationships and develop repect for other. To develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings, to understand appropriate behaviour in groups and have their own confidence.
The national curriculum states that it should provide pupils with an introduction to essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens.
Schools should make provision for PSHE education, and should draw on good practice.
We have covered PSE development, Physical and
Speech, language and communication.
Which areas of development haven't we covered?
Have a look at the EYFS and the National curriculum for KS 1 and see where this/these areas fit in, and what each of the documents say about them. Make your own notes.
