These photographs and 'Learning Stories' 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. 


To give you a sense of some of the learning that takes place during the PLODs the adult working with the children will produce a 'Learning Story'. This will include some photographs but also a description of what the children did, discovered and learnt.


Please also scroll down for a version of our handwashing and group time 'hello' song.

Look below for two of our most recent PLOD 'Learning Stories'. Some of the children learnt how to bake shortbread by thinking about following a recipe and learning what to do at each stage. The children also worked on an 'open-ended resources' PLOD which encouraged the children to use resources in new and creative ways, working collaboratively towards shared goals. View the 'Learning Stories' below for more information on the children's learning and what they did. You can also view some previous Learning Stories.
