CHCECE023 Analyse information to inform learning - scenario help

Post by vawdon » Wed Sep 25, 2019 12:35 pm

Indeed of help with these scenario questions, I have the questions in red and what I have answer in blue. Please help


Question 3a

Gus (4yrs)

Gus (4yrs) has spent the weekend with his grandparents. He tells me that he helped his Pop to mow the lawn and helped Nan to make fairy cakes with green icing. He also told me that he has a treasure in his pocket and asked me to guess what it might be. Before I could answer, Gus announced he has jewels in his pocket. He showed me two costume jewellery brooches given to him by his Nan. ‘This one is an emerald and this one is a ruby. See, one is green and one is red and there’s gold too. My nan’s got a ring with a diamond but she said I couldn’t have it because it was precious. My Pop said that people dig jewels up out of the ground but I digged in the garden but I didn’t find any.’

. Interpretation – what does this observation tell you about the child’s thinking and language skills?

ii. What does this observation tell you about Gus’s personality/temperament?


iii. Suggest one experience/activity or routine that could be planned to support the child’s interest in gems.
_  Implanting gems into play experiences like play dough,small parts or craft experiences 


Husn (3.6yrs)

Husn is a dedicated block builder. Every day he tells me what he is going to build. Husn usually works quietly on his own. He doesn’t invite other children to join him, but will happily share his construction if others show interest.

Today Husn begins with a hollow block for his base, then adds a small cylinder with a larger cylinder on top. He then places a small bamboo cylinder followed by a taller bamboo cylinder on his tower.

As Husn is building, he sits back on his heels and looks carefully at the placement of each block as if assessing his structure for soundness or aesthetics. He adjusts some pieces and occasionally swaps one block for another. When a block falls Husn picks it up and tries several new positions before deciding on a final placement.

Ben (3.4yrs) comes and sits opposite Husn: ‘That’s a good tower, Husn.’

Husn smiles shyly.

Ben points to the bamboo cylinders: ‘Can I put one on top now?’

Husn smiles and nods. He watches closely as Ben carefully places another block on the tower.

Husn: ‘That’s good Ben.’

The two continue to work together, extending the construction at the base. Husn can be heard telling Ben what he is going to do next and asking Ben for ideas.


i. Interpretation – what does this observation tell you about the child’s problem-solving and social skills?Husn, does not initiate play but is able to interact well with others who do initiate, Huns is able to concentrate and try to complete tasks rather then giving up 


ii. What does this observation tell you about Husn as a learner?

iii. Suggest one experience/activity or routine that could be planned to support Husn’s problem-solving skills.Marshmallow and tooth pick building experience or you could use playdough or bluetack 

Miller (11mths)

Miller is now crawling, and has discovered that she can use her hand to bat a soft rubber ball across the floor. For the last two weeks, Miller has spent much of her crawling time batting and chasing her ball around the room. Today the ball rolled under a table that was pushed up against the wall. Miller tried to crawl under the table but was blocked by two chairs. Miller then crawled to the side of the table and stretched out her arm to try and reach the ball. When this was not successful, Miller crawled to the other side of the table. This time she lay face down and wriggled under a chair. She managed to bat the ball from under the table but then appeared to be stuck under the chair. At this point Miller squealed and looked to the educator, but did not appear to be distressed. I responded by asking if she was stuck and I then helped her by moving the chair. Miller smiled and then crawled off in search of the ball.


i. Interpretation – what does this observation tell you about
Miller’s physical, problem-solving and communication skills?

ii. What is Miller learning about herself?

iii. Suggest one experience/activity or routine that could be planned to support Miller’s problem-solving skills.
Playing hide and seek with objects.

I apologise for my delayed response... I recently had a baby so please bear with me as I adjust to balancing work and family.

You're on the right track as far as your responses go. Have a read through the following and it will help with the interpretation as well as the child as a learner:
