Children enjoy being creative. For instance, they carefully create flags, draw or print using various fruits and vegetables. Children's artwork is celebrated and displayed within the room, creating a sense of achievement and belonging.

Children are encouraged to have a voice in this setting, which teaches them that their thoughts and ideas are important and valued. For example, the termly 'Children's Council'. This helps staff to seek children's views on what they have enjoyed and the types of outdoor activities they would like to do, the snacks they would like and craft ideas they would like to try out.

Staff provide a range of opportunities for children to be physically active. For example, staff teach children how to play a variety of outdoor games. Children demonstrate persistence and resilience when learning to use the bat and ball.

Children are learning to be independent. Some are happy to take on added responsibility. For example, they are assigned the role of 'prefect', and accompany staff to collect younger children from their classrooms.
