Outside area

This week our Reception children have very much enjoyed exploring the new equipment and opportunities in their outside area. The gardening and planting area has been a big hit and the children can’t wait to start growing and taking care of their own vegetables! It’s been lovely to see our ‘green-fingered’ children collaborating during their play and working as a team. 

At Thistle Hill, our children are excited and motivated to engage in rich and challenging experiences, both inside and outside of their classroom. We have high ambitions for all of our children, with staff planning carefully to meet each child’s needs and stage of development, ensuring our children get off to a great start in their education. Child initiated play based learning is at the heart of our practice. We carefully plan for opportunities, activities and experiences that develop all of our children into independent, resilient and confident learners.​
