What we do outdoors

I read and file information from Nursery World into three categories: 'Outdoor play', 'On display' and 'Our bright idea'. I also collect the posters and All About pullouts.

The most popular area is water play. There are various containers, plastic drain pipes and guttering between different-sized water troughs. With waterproof dungarees, acquired from an advert in the magazine, wellies and plenty of water, the children play together for the whole time allotted. They experiment with the water in such ways as to cover numeracy and science. Above all, they are being sociable.
