Wonderful new lower school playground

Our Lower School are waiting in anticipation for our fabulous outdoor learning area, which was designed with a collaboration of ideas from parents, staff and, most importantly, the children who are at the heart of all we do.

We are building on the existing provision of a Woodland School and extensive grounds where children can run, climb, be curious, imaginative and take risks, whilst fully absorbed in their learning.

In our design, we have built on the heuristic play, already experienced and provided similar opportunities, in our ‘outdoor classroom’. Pupils will be able to nurture plants, observe life-cycles and eat produce, in addition to experiencing a sensory feast.

Our mud kitchens, bubbling stream, water walls and beach will enable pupils to engage with the elements, alongside problem-solving with pulleys and levers. Balance and strength will be developed through negotiating wobbly bridges and undulating pathways. Quiet time for thought and reflection can take place in our secret garden and sensory area.

This improved provision will be ready for September 2019.
