Our children love playing and learning in our ‘Secret Garden’ and each and every day, rain or shine they all spend time in it. Often it is used as an ‘outside classroom’. We have a range of activities for the children in the garden, and the different age groups also learn patience whilst waiting for the activity of their choice to be free. They are also being educated about the use of sun cream and sun hats and why they are important to use.
We have a new shed in the garden which is houses many of our activities to enable the children to access resources as well as the teachers. This re-enforces the importance of choosing an activity, playing with it and then tidying it away when finished with.
