“Out here, with nothing added there is a whole wealth of opportunity… they use their imagination to bring it alive”. Pupils enjoy playing in the large mature woodland on the edge of the playground and staff see an improvement in behaviour – as “theyare engaged, enjoy themselves, have things to do, work together as a team, are more motivated…” and have comeup with creative ways to allow free play in the very large area.
