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 some of our most recent PLOD 'Learning Stories'. Over recent weeks some of the children have been working on several PLODs around 'drawing for a purpose'. The children have been developing their observational skills and learning how to use various senses to inform their work. These are important skills not just for developing creative skills but they also support early writing. Recently some of the children were also working on a Lego PLOD, using their imaginations to build whilst developing their fine motor and concentration skills.
