Loose Parts Play

A huge thank you to everyone who has handed in materials for our loose parts play. We are still building up our collection. A special thank you goes to Craig Danahar and his mum Angela who donated their trampoline. The children will have lots of fun building and designing with the 100 springs, the poles and the legs! We will also be using the tarpaulin and the nets to build very exciting dens! Thanks Craig!
