Walking in a Woodland Wonderland

Our beautiful outdoor area at Truro School Prep, the Enchanted Garden, was busier than normal yesterday as our Reception pupils invited their families in to share a fabulous woodland afternoon tea.

Outdoor learning is an essential and integral part of the curriculum at Prep, particularly in the Pre-Prep where it is used daily. The extensive gardens have been lovingly developed by Mrs Stableforth who has worked tirelessly to turn them into a haven for our children and our wildlife.

The gardens use recycled and re-purposed materials wherever possible (including the beautiful bunting) and our children are encouraged to make things, like Log Dog (who can be seen being ‘walked’ in our photos below) and the stunning willow crowns they wore for the afternoon, from natural materials.

The woodland afternoon tea was a chance to celebrate the joys of being outdoors with our families; our Reception children were certainly delighted to show off their favourite areas including the mud kitchen, ball slide and willow maze.

It was a truly magical afternoon and was the perfect end to a fantastic year. We want to thank all of the staff, pupils and families who made the afternoon possible, with special thanks to Mrs Stableforth for creating such a unique and special outdoor learning area for us to enjoy.
