These photographs will give you a flavour of the activities the children have enjoyed over the last few weeks.
We have been working on various PLODs amongst all our other activities. PLOD stands for 'Possible Lines of Development'. Each week one or two 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.
We have been thinking about 'people who help us' and particularly those people who provide different services for us. We were lucky enough to have a couple visits from the police last week and they were able to bring some of their equipment including one of their large vans.
The children had an opportunity to sit inside and even in some cases pretend to drive the vehicle. Perhaps the highlight for most was hearing the siren!
