The 'Learning Stories' below 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'. Most weeks one or two PLODs will be running across the nursery. These are activities where an adult will work with children and support them to develop their learning skills through their play. Providing opportunities for the children to return to these PLODs throughout the week also allows them to get more from the experience. 

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

Below are also some photographs of activities all the children have undertaken. As part of our work exploring the changes of autumn the children studied some examples of work by Andy Goldsworthy. They discovered how he will use natural objects to make 'transient art'. They then had a go themselves.


The children also had another firepit experience last week, this time exploring how we make popcorn (and of course sampling it!). You will also see that the children have been hard at work writing and making their cards ready to be posted this week and next.
