Outstanding Outdoor Early Years Experiences

 

Stay and Play at St Ambrose 

Tuesdays 9.15-11.15am

 

Stay and play has started again after the Christmas break, if you have a child aged between 0 and 3 years old then please come along and join us at our Stay and Play session, it runs every Tuesday during term time.

Indoor Provision 

 

We have invested heavily in our indoor environments, this has included support from external consultants and a huge spend on furniture, flooring and resources to ensure that our children are accessing the very best play equipment to ensure that they achieve the best outcomes.

 

Below are images of some of our indoor spaces:

 

 

Our amazing Growing In Faith Together Garden was completed at the end of September 2016 and we worked closely with the children over the Autumn term on how to use the area.

 

We have used an outdoor play consultant, Charlotte Derry, to develop our risk assessments and appropriate use of the area by all users.

 

All children had sessions with Charlotte, their teachers and teaching assistants before they were able to access the area as part of their everyday provision.

 

Below are some images of our fabulous GIFT garden:

It was amazing to see so many of our parents in school to explore our new outdoor space.

If any parents have any more questions about the daily grounds checks we will be carrying out, the risk benefit assessments that have been done or the children's 'training' sessions then please ask to speak to me, Mrs Fagan or drop me an email: k.fagan@st-ambrose.manchester.sch.uk

 

Here are some photos from the session of parents enjoying exploring the space with their children...
