- Small and large construction equipment where the children gain vital skills in building, space, shape and measure.

- A large indoor and outdoor space that has painting, sand and water, mark making which we plan for and adapt according to the children’s interests.
- Nursery children integrate with reception children as part of our EYFS unit to help transition and encourages them to be independent learners.
