Outdoor Learning

At St Mary’s our Early Years outside space has been designed to ensure the children are highly engaged in their learning.  It includes a mud kitchen, digging area, reading area, writing shed, investigation station, large construction area, vegetable patch, bikes and scooters, a sand pit, a water investigation station, a music and performance area and climbing apparatus. 

We constantly strive to ensure the resources and learning opportunities enable the children to have high levels of engagement and support them making progress across the Early Years curriculum.   We are an all-weather school and so these areas are open throughout the year.
