Sometimes children of the same age groups have different abilities with their physical development.Child one is not as physically developed as child two, due to the difference in development child one struggles more with fine and gross motor skills, child one will have difficulty with throwing and catching a ball and has poorer hand to eye coordination than child two, this can make the child seem quite clumsy. This can also affect them emotionally as they get upset that child two may pass judgement on their ability. It can also affect them socially as some children will not want to be paired with this child during activities due to their general clumsiness and poor control.There can also be children of the same age group who have different levels of intellectual development.   Sometimes children may have completely different worksheets to suit their ability, this can affect the way the children interact with each other, in some cases the lower ability group will be finished before the higher ability group due to extra teaching support and the work being easier.In some settings when the lower ability group have finished they can move on to a more enjoyable activity, this can cause an emotional or behavioural response from the children in the other groups as they will want to join in with them but can't as they haven't finished their work. Sometimes the children may work together in mixed ability groups if the work is similar, the children will work together and help each other, therefore learning from each other.
