Our outdoor space
We have a free-flow system which enables our children to spend as much or as little time as they wish outdoors. Our all-weather canopy allows us to go outdoors whatever the weather.
Children help to look after our flower, herb and vegetable patch. We love to nurture and watch things grow and our children take great delight in seeing their hard work come to fruition as their flowers, blackberries, strawberries, or most recently, sunflowers thrive.
There are lots of opportunities for children to use their imagination, building sand castles and mud pies in our sand pit and they love to role play in our mud kitchen.
We play lots of games to encourage collaboration and co-operation. These include “what’s the time Mr Wolf”, the parachute, hide and seek, and large construction activities. Our children love to create and construct in our outdoor construction site, here we learn about different tools, what safety equipment we might need to keep safe and take part in building walls, towers and much more with our foam house bricks.
We have lots of fun practicing co-ordination and balance on a variety of outdoor play resources such as bikes, slides and climbing frames. Nature is a big part of our outdoor learning and we embrace this by helping children to focus on their natural desire to explore the world around them.
