Dear families,

Attached are some photos of the new playground that has just been commissioned for children to use. It is the first part of a three stage development, and already we have seen a huge interest by children, using it at recess and lunchtimes. They are busy exploring, creating, sharing and using a range of inquiry skills, working both by themselves and in small groups. In order to keep the numbers to a suitable size, we have initially set up a roster for all classes to be able to access the nearby equipment. We are hopeful that within the next week or two we can take that away and just open up to children as they would like to make use of it. The sandpit is extremely popular, but so is the balancing beam and the main platform.

Please note that it is not to be used before or after school, as per our Covid-19 policy at the moment.

Kind regards,

Steve Freeman
