A Plod Question


Recommended Posts

Can you help, is this a silly question I ask myself?

 

I went to a childrens centre the other day to have a nose! I got talking about planning like you do! and they told me they dont use our early years Developmental records they use a document titled PLOD to support them with their planning the childrens next steps- the girl couldnt tell me any more information only that it was a typed document!!!

I asked her if it was similar to moving through the stepping stones? she wasnt sure

 

Can anyone aid my curiousity please?

 

thankyou

I did a Google search putting in the words early years PLOD. It gave me a link to the TES site with a discussion about planning and PLODs. You can find it here.

We use Plods to plan for next steps in children's learning. The main focus is the child's interests.

 

The format I use is on the EYFS CD, I made it into a word document which is attached.

 

You just need to put in the activities planned for the child in six FS/ fourB23 areas boxes and brief summaries of observations in the circles. One circle is for suggested activities at home.

 

The plod is shared with parents so they can make their contributions to the planned activities.

 

We handwrite our plans so no example of a completed one (sorry), however, there is an example on the EYFS CD.

Keen, here's the link to the website version:

 

http://www.standards.dfes.gov.uk/eyfs/reso...3-4yearolds.pdf

 

To access files on the cd, you need to right click and go to 'explore', rather than autoplay. However, all documents are also on the resources part of the website.

Hope this helps. :o
