Hi, yes you're on the right tracks its about how you check each activity benefits the child and their learning and development. Where children have already had their individual needs identified, activities can be planned to meet those needs. The first time an activity is offered to a child or that the child initiates for themselves will highlight how good it is for them and if it is appropriate in supporting their needs and learning..
Activities and children's needs will be unique to your setting or placement.
Do you atttend meetings that suggest new activities.
Do you suggest activities directly to a colleague, lead, manager
Do you suggest changing an activity as you've observed how the child seemed to like or dislike it, completed it very quickly or struggled to complete it.
What type of observations do you conduct in the setting - notes, snapshot, fill in a feedback section on an activity sheet?
