Daily, Unique EYFS Outdoor Provision, without Breaking your Back!
Children at Lanivet Under Fives Pre-School are now enjoying and benefitting from a new, varied and stimulating outdoor environment, which alters every day! The dedicated staff are still smiling and relaxed, the children are happy and excited. So how are they achieving this amazing balance between maintaining a manageable workload for the staff, but still providing inspirational, quality play experiences for their little ones? What’s their secret?
Returning to school can be something to look forward to when friends and colleagues meet up after the long break and reconnect. It’s a time when anticipation and nervous energy intensifies, but this energy can be channelled into something positive within the classroom.
Hopes and Dreams
Gwennap Parish Council dreamed of creating an inspirational new community space and are so thrilled at the transformation that has occurred in such a short space of time. Their original play park housed some very tired, old equipment, which had definitely seen better days. However, it was a play space with much potential just waiting for a change!
Are long playtimes a thing of the past?
When we think of our school days, we often have fond memories of break times, socialising with friends, enjoying the fresh air and having time to relax, away from the pressures of the classroom.
Playtimes are essential for developing friendships, having a break from learning and for stretching your legs. We all feel better and refocused after a break from whatever task we are doing, as a break improves concentration levels and improves our wellbeing.
