You don't have anything in your wishlist at the moment.
Headteacher Lynda Bowyer commissioned Playscheme to design and build a new nature and sensory learning space.
Items included an outdoor resource centre with bi-folding doors, a sensory footpath, stream play system with push-button water, a dipping pond area and nature space.
We also built the Drasil House, including a balcony and bench with storage and a music zone with high-quality soprano quartet ensemble, including congas, babel drum, cadenza and soprano pentatonic with stainless steel legs, all rounded off with benches.
When the project first kicked off, particularly wet weather flooded the site, but we managed to create a drainage system and work continued!
Pond and water features
The water-based elements really allow for children to learn in a different way - they can see in practice capacity, forces, floating and sinking, lifestyles and habitats - and of course, have fun at playtimes too!
This part of the outdoor learning area includes a resource room with glass side windows and coloured glass roof verges. This is a good-sized space with an open side, so the children will be able to enjoy learning about different topics in an outdoor environment throughout the year.
