Our Reception Outdoor Vision!
The EYFS states:
• ‘Being outdoors has a positive impact on children's sense of well-being and helps all aspects of children's development.
• Being outdoors offers opportunities for doing things in different ways and on different scales than when indoors.
• It gives children first-hand contact with weather, seasons and the natural world.
• Outdoor environments offer children freedom to explore, use their senses, and be physically active and exuberant.’
We are looking to improve our outdoor area to make it exciting and inviting for our wonderful children. We need your help!
We would be very grateful for anything you could donate to us and it would be highly beneficial for our children to explore and investigate with such open ended resources! Together with our caretaker we want create and build some amazing structures for our children and build up our outdoor area.
Attached are various inspirational pictures from our school Outdoor Vision and a google page for you to visit to help understand the types of equipment we are looking for and how we would use it.
