Children love new outdoor learning area
MANGOTSFIELD Church of England Primary School's new outdoor area is a big hit.
The new area was designed by Early Years Foundation Stage teaching assistants at the school in Emersons Green last year along the theme of the four elements – earth, air, wind and fire.
The outdoor area is available for reception children to use throughout the day, enabling them to choose to learn both indoors and outdoors.
Assistant head teacher and EYFS lead Jo Sihag said: "It has been designed to allow independent play, core strength and shoulder pivot development, safe risk-taking and large-scale play.
"The project was funded by the school to enhance our outdoor provision in EYFS and to ensure that children were able to develop the skills above."
