Year R Curriculum
Home Learning - Week 1
In Year R we use an approach to planning called PLODS (Possible Lines of Development). We start by taking the interests of the children and then think of a range of possible activities that could take place, linking them to the aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. The PLODS evolve and change over time so they are always reflective of the children interests and we add PLODS if new interests emerge. The activities will be set up in the environment to help the children achieve the next step in their learning. Take a look at how the PLODs develop as we go through the year.
Longdown Activity Farm Trip!
Robins and Thrushes went to Longdown Activity Farm this week and had an absolutely fantastic time. The children were enthusiastic, engaged, inquisitive and incredibly well behaved. The Longdown Staff praised us on how brilliant the children were and we are very proud of them.
The children got to be farmers for the day which included bottle feeding the calves and kids, feeding the large goats and handling some of the new arrivals at the farm including a 5 day old guinea - pig!
We got to meet Pearl the Shire Horse, some furry alpacas and some miniature donkeys!
Long at some of our wonderful photos, some were even taken by the children!
