Free Range Play

OPAL – play project

From January 2014 and over the next few years we are setting out on an ambitious project to improve the play opportunities that we offer to our children. During ‘Free range play’ we will open up the entire field and both the playground areas during lunch times.

We plan to develop the field area over the next few years so that the children will have the opportunity to –

  • Climb trees
  • Play in the mud kitchen
  • Play in the sand pit
  • Play in the village area – den building and shelter area
  • Play musical instruments
  • Play in the boat
  • Ride their bikes
  • Ride their scooters
  • Play on climbing walls and low ropes courses
  • Play football
  • Play netball
  • Play with their siblings
  • And much, much more!

Free range play will take place every day, except in the very worst weather conditions, from 12noon to 1.15 pm.
