From an old cable reel and artificial grass, ideal for small world play or for displaying items for investigation and exploration


Cosy gathering / story area with story boxes including props. The drape on the ceiling is held up using wooden sticks collected from the garden.

Alternative investigation area, for both in and outdoors, we also have another unit for the light and dark investigation items with the light table

Simple responsive art display. Put some nice frames up and blue tack and pictures your children are proud of including a speech bubble of what they say about the picture.

Creative area, different size paper, junk modelling, pens, pencils etc and powder paints ready for children to mix
