Infant External Environments

Visiting an infant school in Dorset recently, I really liked and appreciated what they had tried to do in their very restricted external environment. Considering they had very limited space, no field, almost no grass, no trees, they have created some fab little areas. One of two artificially raised grassed areas provide a social seating area, complete with a great living willow 'room' and 'mini' benches and tables made by local prisoners. It's great!
The other raised area acts as an external stage and performance area used for all sorts of events, concerts, prize giving, end of term events ..... children use it as a play and creative area - just how cool is that?
The living willow room... used for story telling , play and creativity... a great environment...
