Then he reached to the sandpit and sat in the corner of the sandpit. Declan picked up the one spade with his left hand and he covers his feet with the sand. He seemed to be experimenting with the sand because he tastes the sand. Declan loved to feel sand on his feet and hands also Declan love to see sand running through his finger.

I went over to sit next Declan and I asked ” where is my Declan. What are you doing ” he nodded his head, smile and communicating using bubbling voice. Declan holds a strainer using one hand he tries to fill the sand using his right-hand. I show you hold strainer with two hands and put it on your head with the sand. after that you took two spades on your both hand and began scooping to sand at the same time you shuffle your both legs in the sandpit. Analysing Declan learning and development link with EYLF , I saw Declan had great time in the sand pit today.

Declan, you are become good listener and can imitates sound and actions. You recognise your name when I am calling your name. when I respond to your needs and interest meaningfully also communicate positive, it helps Declan to build a secure attachment with me and the educators who in the room such as playing with Declan with the sand pour sand on to his legs and help Declan to fill sand in to the cup. .
