Sunshine Nursery - Our outdoor area
At Sunshine Nursery we use the outdoor area every day. The outdoor area is designed to progress the children’s physical, social and personal skills and communication, language and interaction skills. We have a range of continuous provision including a garden/growing area, a reading jungle, a building area, mud kitchen, mark making area and water play. We also have a range of equipment such as bikes, scooters and climbing apparatus.
Children love to explore our mud kitchen. We use a range of resources for the children to explore including mud, sand, water, food, and clay. We take the children on walks around the local burn and local woodland to collect resources to use in our mud kitchen. The mud kitchen is a great resource for children to develop their fine and gross motor skill, communication and language and personal social and emotional skills. The children often link experiences from home to the mud kitchen. Children tell us about baking at home and their grandparents’ allotments.
