Our EYFS Playground Development

We’ve made some exciting new developments to our outdoor learning environment.

One amazing addition is our new log climbing frame which is a fantastic and challenging resource that will help build the children’s climbing confidence, strength, balance and gross motor skills.

For mark making, art and literacy, we have installed a Giant Whiteboard and Chalkboard. These excellent blank canvases will inspire the children to express themselves through art and writing.

Finally, we have had an exciting messy play area installed, consisting of a Water Table, Sand Table and Tuff Spot Table.

We worked with Pentagon Play on this project who design and install outdoor learning environments for schools and nurseries.
