1 1 Documentation approach in practice 29 James and Fergus sharing ideas with others Where does the episode go next? This interest, that started as an episode as described during one morning, developed into a project. James and Fergus, in the meantime, collected a sizeable sum of money and became very keen to include other children in their work, which meant that there was now a learning group emerging whose interests in the Pakistan earthquake were appearing to be diverse. The two staff members of the learning group were working with the children to discover what exactly sparked James’s interest in the earthquake.

Provocation for learning goes home again What was becoming increasingly clear to staff during the development of this significant episode of learning was that Louise, one of the learning-group members, had a particular interest in electricity because her dad was building a new house for her family. This meant that she was actively seeing electricity being installed through the cables into her house.

My eye has come out now [pretending to close one eye]. When are you going to get a new eye? When I go to Glasgow, I am going to see an artist, who is going to paint a picture of my good eye, and then from that they will make a new one. What will they make it from? Well, a long time ago it would have been glass, but now it is made from plastic. Will you be able to take the eye out? Yes, they will show me how to clean it and put it in and take it out. All of us here have two eyes, and Nana has only one eye, and Rabbit has only got one eye too!
