EYFS Outdoor Area

EYFS Outdoor Area

Some of you will remember that last year we successfully applied for the Tesco Bags of Help local grant scheme. This is where the money raised from the government’s bag charge is used to fund a large number of local projects to create or improve green spaces in communities across England, Scotland and Wales. Not only was our application successful but we also received the most votes and were awarded £4,000! Thank you to everyone who supported us directly or by spreading the word. Work has now started to improve and develop a section of the EYFS outdoor area. Research shows that children would choose to have the following in their outdoor play spaces: vegetation, water, mud, dirt, sand, creatures and insects, wildness, natural colour, diversity, change, loose parts, different levels, nooks and crannies and rocks, logs and stumps. Our plan for the area aims to incorporate as many of these features as possible in order to create a useable and inspiring area, so watch this space!
