Our huge and varied outdoor environment provides wonderful learning experiences
The gardens are used extensively and considered of at least equal importance to the inside learning environment. Therefore, whatever the weather we put on wellies, raincoats and hats and enjoy the outside space.
A combination of climbing and balancing equipment, resources for building and creating and for imaginative play provide many interesting opportunities and challenges for the children.
At Woodcroft, we are very fortunate to have our very own supply of eggs from our own chickens
The children enjoy taking it in turns to collect the eggs each day in preparation for cooking something yummy.
Looking after the chickens gives the children the opportunity to care for animals and understand the importance of this.
Each year we are provided with fertilised eggs which we put in an incubator so that the children (and staff) can watch eagerly as the eggs hatch and little chicks appear.
