As well as some information about some of our latest PLODs below, I am also posting a few more story videos for you and your children to share together over the Easter break.

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 scroll down for videos of our handwashing and group time ‘hello’ song.

Some of the children have been working with clay again for a PLOD in the conservatory. Building on the concept of 'thinking out of the box' and interpreting things in a creative way, they were working with the clay first and then exploring how they could model it for a purpose. The children were also working in the Sand Area, collaborating on ideas and using different resources in various ways.
