The outdoor site caters for all types of play, construction and creative activities, and use of the elements earth, air, fire and water. It has purpose-built wooden structures which the children contribute to design and build including platforms and bridges for climbing and running. It also has a large sandpit, fire-pit, zip-wire, tango swing and legging swing, a tunnel and space to run, be noisy, dance, build etc. Children can use tools to create their own dens, help cook over the open fire and use a huge array of recycled resources and loose parts to make things, dress up and play in any way they choose – ways often not condoned or allowed elsewhere. Our society tends to focus on the education and protection of children and rarely considers their play needs and yet play is the natural means by which kids express themselves, enjoy life, develop and thrive.
