To reflect upon what children need to learn and when

Aim

To reflect upon what children need to learn and when.

Evidence and reflection

Work with a colleague or fellow student to consider what children need to learn, for example at age 3.

Is it vital that a 3-year-old is able to identify the colour of objects?

What useful information might a practitioner gain by an exercise that assesses a 3-year-old child’s ability to differentiate between colours?

What experience involving ‘colour’ might a 3-year-old enjoy and learn from? What would they learn?
