Linking Observations To Development Summary and EYLF

Post by nawnaw » Tue May 09, 2017 6:09 pm

Just wondering if this sounds okay? And also needing some advice on 'How would you link the Learning Outcome of the Approved Learning Framework (EYLF / VEYLDF) to the above Child Developmental Summary' for each observation? thank you in advance


Observation: (Learning Story)
Of late, P’s educators have been watching her walking abilities blossom. Today in the Possum room we set up a planned experience that allowed for P to use her new found skill. We set up an obstacle course outside that incorporated activities that allowed for E to run, climb, crawl and balance. P loved every moment of this planned experience. Whilst climbing on the A frame P saw one of her friends balancing without using any hands! P tried and tried to copy her friend and finally managed to balance while holding on with just one hand! Well done P! Once P grew tired of this activity we went and played with a ball. P would roll it to me and I would bounce it back or roll it back to her.

Reflection and future planning: Comment on your observation – how can you use this information to support the child’s development and holistic learning.
With this observation we are able to continue to strengthen P’s gross motor skills. Such as planning running races, setting up an obstacle course that gradually differs in difficulty and challenges P’s current skills and/or creating games that involve rolling, jumping, dancing and chasing.

Physical Development (Gross and Fine Motor):
- Very determined child
- He is very active
- Loves playing with toy cars which help strengthen his fine motor skills.

Social/Emotional Development (E.g. separation):
- Is beginning to play with others, still needs close supervision
- He is able to share humour, happiness and satisfaction.

Language Development (receptive and expressive)
- Loves reading
- Loves joining in with singing and makes many facial expressions and joins in through making his own noises.

Cognitive Development:
- Enjoys stimulating environments, especially anything physical
- Responds to music with body motions.

Observation: (Anecdotal observation)
J is a wonderful addition to our possum room. Of late, J has been displaying confidence in showing us educators how gentle, kind, caring and comforting he can be towards his friends.
J noticed that one of his friends was a little upset so he walked over to her, vocalising with her as he did. He then knelt down beside her and held out his hand. His friend then took J’s hand and they proceeded to walk around the room holding hands smiling the entire time. They continued to do this for around 20 minutes playing games together and talking together.
In the afternoon when our two nursery rooms joined together J walked straight over to one of the toy babies. He would hold the baby in his arms slowly rocking it while saying ‘shhh’ as if trying to calm the baby down. J would then place the baby gently into its little cot. After this, as J’s little sister is in the 1st nursery room, he moved over to where his sister was having a bottle. As there was an educator holding his sisters bottle J said “Ahh” and reached out for the bottle. The educators then handed J the bottle and J straight away held it back to his sister’s mouth. With this observation we are able to see the how strong the connection is between J and his baby sister.

Reflection and future planning: Comment on your observation – how can you use this information to support the child’s development and holistic learning.
With what I have observed we are able to see how strong the connection is between J and his baby sister. In saying this, ways in which we can support this is by setting up our daily learning environments in ways that can promote small group interactions in a positive manner.

Physical Development (Gross and Fine Motor):
- Differs between using hands and cutlery
- Is starting to dress himself

Social/Emotional Development (E.g. separation):
- Raises arms when he wants to be picked up

Language Development (receptive and expressive)
- Is having conversations with other children using his own language
- Says ‘Bye-bye’ as people leave the room

Cognitive development:
- Enjoys stimulating environments, especially anything physical

How would you link the Learning Outcome of the Approved Learning Framework (EYLF / VEYLDF) to the above Child Developmental Summary?


Observation: (Jottings)
B pulled herself up holding onto one of the shelves. A then reached for a puppet smiling as she did and grabbed for the toy.

Reflection and future planning: Comment on your observation – how can you use this information to support the child’s development and holistic learning.
As B is currently learning to stand and walk this Jotting observation shows me that she has a strong interest in learning this skill. This will then allow for me to set up planned experience that can focus on B gross motor skills.

Physical Development (Gross and Fine motor):

Social/emotional development (E.g. separation)

Language Development (receptive and expressive)

Cognitive Development:

Yes, you're on the right track with your responses!

In regards to linking to the EYLF you can use the following:

Children Achieving Outcomes

Choose the outcomes that the child achieves during the experience observed.

For development:

Child Development

Hope this helps!

What link have you discovered between the observations you have made and the approved learning framework that your centre abides by?

This question is based on the observations you have made... the approved frameworks are either EYLF (early childhood) or MTOP (OOSH centres - primary).
