Outdoor

Our outdoor areas consist of a digging and planting area, nature garden and playground. We use our digging and planting area to grow fresh vegetables and herbs and to encourage the children to explore the world around them.

 

Our nature garden is designed to attract wildlife providing the children with the opportunities to explore nature and all its glory.

 

Our playground has recently been developed with a rubber safety surface, large canopy, large water tray, large sand pit, pirate ship, artificial grass and a variety of activity panels. This allows the children to go outside regardless of the weather.

 

Due to our location we are able to provide opportunities for the children to access local areas of interest. All outings are assessed and safety is maintained by senior practitioners.

 

As we are a Green Tree School our children have the opportunity to visit Cowbury Dale Wood on a regular basis this is to enhance their learning and enable them to make fresh discoveries.

 

Some other local areas we are able to visit are; the potbelly pig, the duck pond, local heritage trails (Swallow Lane, Cowbury Dale), country parks and the local vicinity.

 

These opportunities can be enhanced by our wide range of resources allowing the children to develop their fine and gross motor skills, investigation and exploration skills, knowledge of the world and their language skills by developing new vocabulary.
