Children's development

This section looks at how children learn at different stages of development and how activities in the classroom need to address their cognitive, motor, language and social development.

Obviously children do not all fit neatly into categories and their development will depend on their personality, maturity and previous learning experiences. You will no doubt recognise how your own students fit the descriptions. The age groups will be grouped as:
