British International School of Boston
We have continued to develop our outside spaces, this year focusing on the Kindergarten and First Grade outside space. Working with a parent, who is a landscaper, we were able to transform a large, unused area of grass into a functioning outdoor classroom.
We worked with the children to make a list of things they would like in their outdoor space. We were able to construct a large sand pit using reclaimed wood. There is a large garden bed wtih a wide range of plants and flowers. These will attract a large variety of insects in the summer months. The children have a dedicated water play area as well as a mud kitchen and climbing structure. The children also have access to musical instruments as well as a play hut.
We have movable log seating so teachers are able to take their lessons outside.
