Outside learning

Our gardens are extensive. We have access to a small orchard of apples and pears. There is a secure area for pond dipping and large field to practice our all year PE provision. With the help of the children we grow our own vegetables and herbs, which we use in our cookery activities. Our gardens are located on a hill giving us views over Purleigh vine yard and the river Blackwater. The children enjoy our regular country walks, exploring the village and experiencing the interaction of the village shop. Where they learn to buy real commodities and pay for them. We are proud of our connections with the wider community and Purleigh Primary School. Half Pint work closely with the school, visiting the reception class, attending special events and assemblies. Our outside classroom provides all weather learning opportunities and our outside toys are stimulating and motivating.
