Our Imagination Station has proved to be a great success this term. For those of you who haven't seen it in action, the aforesaid shed, situated in the playground, is filled with recycled materials and equipment suitable for outdoor creative play: plastics, large reels, huge tubes, pipes, large boxes, old tyres, material, tarpaulin and much more.
The Imagination Station will be filled and replenished throughout the year.The ultimate aim is to provide children with a creative alternative to otherwise directed games. Children lead the play and need little or no intervention from adults. The Imagination Station actively encourages children to take risks in order to explore limits, venture into new experiences and develop their capacities, from a young age and from the earliest play experiences. It helps children take their classroom learning experiences into imaginative play outdoors and makes them switched on and ready to learn as soon as they are back in the classroom.
We firmly believe that our Imagination Station will add another dimension to our outdoor provision and support our children’s essential life skills. Thank you to our Owls (PTA) for supporting us with this new project by funding the Imagination Station Shed.
