Long Meadow classroom

We have an outside area for the children to use as an orchard classroom. This area is going to be left as natural as possible with the children being able to initiate their own learning within a safe outdoor environment. Practitioners will be supporting the children's learning by giving them time to explore independently within a multi sensory environment. Children will be able to learn to make decisions, take risks and solve problems.  This area will be accessed in all weathers with our children being suitably dressed for all occasions. The Long Meadow is also used for Forest School Sessions. These take place on alternate Tuesday mornings.
