Staff Voice: Early Years Integrated Learning Area

One of the projects which began over the summer holiday period was the development of the reception outdoor area.


A new fence was constructed to define the area and then zones created to support the many learning points taught in the Early Years classes. Now two construction areas with new large and small building blocks allow for imaginative building alongside a 'Small World Place' with tables filled with dinosaurs and farm animals for another extension of imaginative play. A place now exists for number activities with a popular water wall which links well into mathematics and learning about capacity and other themes. An array of chalk boards encourage the boys to mark make or write their names and a wendy house offers a little retreat for quiet reading and creative role play. We also linked together the outdoor nursery area with reception to allow for a greater flow and increased space which all the boys are enjoying.


For those simply wishing to burn off some energy, we bought some smart new bikes for zooming around the pirate ship which are always popular and in constant use.
