Making learning irresistible

Outdoor Learning Space 

Our outdoor learning space is an environment that allows children to explore the world around them, using and developing skills that they can't indoors. Our outdoor area has lots of different resources and opportunities available to our children, below are some example of these. 

Water Play

Water Play is an open ended activity providing opportunities for extended learning and early experiences in science, maths and language development through their play. Water play leads children to ask questions, developing curiosity and leading to experimentation.

Mud Kitchen/ Texture Kitchen

Mud kitchens can provide a variety of different learning opportunities including sensory, imaginative, creative and exploratory play. Being outdoors gives children the chance to connect and learn about nature, to be creative and invent their own role play games and can even allow opportunities for early maths and science activities.
