We have been working on various PLODs amongst all our other activities. PLOD stands for 'Possible Lines of Development'. Each week two or three PLODs will be running across the nursery where adults will work with children and support them to develop their learning skills. These PLODs may be triggered by the children's interests or a challenge provided by an adult. Returning to this PLOD throughout the week allows the children to get more from the experience, as well as providing opportunities for further planning and reflection.
The children have been exploring and getting to know various aspects of the nursery. This has included our new 'exploration station' as well as various minibeasts we have discovered inside and outside. Having the opportunity to investigate and experiment in an open-ended way allows for endless learning opportunities.
The children have also been working with several members of staff on this week's PLODs, working on creating things and working together in the creative area and harvesting our carrots and planting new seeds in the gardening area.
