Improving our Outdoor Play Space – Part One!

This week at nursery we have been working together to begin to make our outdoor area a better place for playing and learning.

We now have a designated ‘water area’ outside, with some pipes and tubes attached to the shelter.  The resources we use for our big water play are now all stored in one of the small sheds so the children have easier access to water play.

As you can see by the video, the children from the Morning Group have been using the area and having great fun, learning about gravity, forces and properties of water, as well as developing their gross motor skills and working cooperatively together!

This area is still very much a ‘work in progress’ so if you have any ideas to further improve it, we welcome your suggestions!  We would also gratefully receive any unwanted jugs, tubes, guttering, gutter brackets or anything else that you think might be useful.
