Outdoor Play & Learning
In 2016 a castle was added to our extensive outdoor play resources and this, along with an exciting collection of dressing-up clothes and props, offers children a creative outlet during outdoor play sessions. The castle is used extensively during the summer months where, nestled amongst our woodland setting, it provides very welcome shade from the hot sun.
Autumn 2019 saw the opening of a PlayPod, our latest exciting project to extend creative play opportunities. Used almost daily in winter months, the PlayPod offers our children a wealth of opportunities for purposeful, collaborative and creative play. Opening at playtime each day, resources are then left available so that games can be developed and extended through the lunchtime break.
In September 2015 Wildlife expert Simon King visited our school to officially open our wildlife pond. Within a few days, we saw a dragonfly laying eggs on a log and frogs, toads and newts are frequent visitors.
