I will upload the part one assignment of a colleague who got the highest mark. Task 1. • Contextual summary of the placement observation: Pre-school/Reception class/Nursery/Children Centre/Childminder • Summary of the 1st Observation (e.g. learning environment, give examples of activities/resources/areas of provision which offer children the opportunity to develop their emergent literacy skills (consider the 4 strands). • Link the observation to theory/research/literature/lectures about how children develop their emergent literacy skills through access to a rich and stimulating learning environment • Summary of the 2nd Observation: Adult Led observation: What kind of activity was it? What was the aim of the activity? How does the activity link to the EYFS Development Matters statements? How was the activity conducted? What strategies did the adult use to promote children’s literacy skills (enjoyment of books, comprehension, phonics skills, questioning, encouraging speaking and listening, scaffolding thinking skills Conclusion: Summarise your observations in the context of emergent literacy in the Early Years.
