March Update 

The sunshine and warmer weather is finally starting to appear!

The children are continuing to have a fantastic time and really look forward to playing with their friends, using all of the resources that we have and they are earning lots of OPAL power.

Introducing OPAL- January Update

  On Monday 21st January we were excited to launch the OPAL scheme during lunchtimes.

The children have had a fantastic time playing with a range of new resources from cardboard boxes to tractor tyres!

They have been playing much more creatively, working as a team and have been making the most of the new opportunities.

We have now introduced a brand new OPAL learning gem  that children can receive during break and lunchtimes for creative play.

So far we have been really impressed with the fantastic play that the children have been taking part in and have been amazed at how the children are using different resources to take part in lots of imaginative play. 



We would be grateful if you could donate any unwanted cardboard boxes, logs, rope, plastic pipes etc. for the children to play with during their break and lunchtimes.
