After lots of planning and organising, we were thrilled to open our Foundation Phase outdoor area this week. We have spent several months planning the outdoors and with the arrival of the good weather, we could finally begin to put all the different ideas into place.
During the past few months, the children have played an active role in helping to develop our outdoor area by suggesting what they would like to see in their yard, through class discussions, questionnaires and voting for their favourite ideas. With lots of support and help from staff, the PTA and from a wonderful group of hard working volunteers, we have managed to include many of the ideas, such as a muddy kitchen, digging/construction area, sensory garden and sand/water play areas.
We will continue to develop the outdoors further as it will progress and change over time, but until then take a look at our journey so far with some before/after photographs and to see some of the fun we had exploring the different areas this week.
