We have a beautiful large outdoor play area consisting of a large garden, flagged area, wooden decked areas, a sheltered creative area, balancing beams, and a vast array of equipment and resources. As well as planned activities, the children can choose whether they wish to run around, climb and play energetically, or to sit quietly, reading, painting, playing, building, colouring, or resting peacefully. We also have a play house, a water wall, fairy garden, bug hotel, mud kitchen area, sand and water trays, hoops, bikes and scooters, prams, balls, tunnels and chalkboards to name a few.
Our children play and learn outside daily throughout the year and can spend a lot more time outdoors during the warmer months. In summer the children are protected by the shade of our large tree, lots of sun cream is applied regularly and sun hats are worn. In wet weather the children have all-in-one waterproofs, umbrellas and wellies, and can either splash around in the garden or play on the large decked area, which also provides shelter.
