Our OPAL (outdoor play and learning) journey!

Over the last few months we have gradually been introducing some changes to playtimes. The infant and junior children are now mixing across the whole site and it has been lovely to see older children supporting and playing with our younger children. On Tuesday 16th January we began the first wave of introductions with chalk, music, dressing up and larger toys such as dolls houses, buggies and duplo building blocks. The children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The next stage will involve a mud kitchen and lots more exciting things to build with. The children know when they hear the song, “The final countdown” it’s time to tidy up and they have done a great job doing this independently so far. We’re delighted with our progress so far!
