These photographs will give you a flavour of the activities

the children have enjoyed over the last week.


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.

One of our PLODs this week has been working with clay. The children have explored the medium and used it in various types of play. Some have carefully modelled whilst others have used it as the basis for smallworld play and some have explored how to alter its state and colour.


The children have also been enjoying their walks to the post office, where they have bought stamps for their envelopes and then posted their letters. In many ways the walks to and from the post office have provided the most learning opportunities, with the children noticing lots of details about the world around them, showing curiosity and wonder, and sharing their thoughts with each other as they did.
