We are really pleased to let you all know that our outside classroom has been erected and in place at the top of the school grounds. A number of children have already been up to have a look and carry out their learning amongst nature with superb views of the South Downs and the sea! We are currently carrying out last minute preparations to make this an interactive learning area for the children.
We are very much looking forward to creating an area where Forest Schools can take place, especially for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. It will be a place of learning for all classes for all subjects across the curriculum, with a classroom, den area and Fire Pit!
The new Outdoor Classroom is a 5m Hexagonal Gazebo which includes:
• Storytelling Chair
• Giant chalkboard
• Rainwater system with water butt
For this project, we worked with Pentagon Play who design and install outdoor learning environments for schools and nurseries.
