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.

Our two year old children this week have been having 'music and movement' sessions, where they listen to music and then move their bodies appropriately. This might be with the use of scarves, which when used with big movements supports the development of the children's gross motor skills. Another way of building strength across the body is using tricycles for pedalling and pushing, which the children have also been doing this week. Of course the children have also had lots of chances to hear stories and explore books in their own time.
