Our children were involved in the process of designing the play equipment from the start. They really wanted the slide and the bridge and are overjoyed with result. When the construction team arrived at school there was great excitement and for a while the men had a large ‘fan club’ of 4 and 5 year olds who had lined up a row of chairs, and watched them whilst chanting ‘builders, builders, builders’. The children have loved every moment of the construction and were very keen to go out each day (even though the weather was very inclement) to see what had changed since they went home. They are thrilled with their ‘Adventure Fortress’ and again the area is a focus of play and learning in all of its forms within Early Years.
