St Laurences CE School – Story telling area and outdoor space

Posted by Nick Riley on 13th Apr, 2018 |

Story telling area ‘s are always popular in school grounds. They can be as small or as large as you want, filling the smallest corner to creating a whole theme for the garden or outdoor space.

We like to combine the standard elements of the authors chair and fixed bench seating in the design of a Story Telling area, with a decent flooring that wont turn to mud, and a selection of moveable logs. Our Resibond surfacing is easy to lay and gives a rubber surface, free from mud, over existing grass. Some grass will grow through around the edges but it does blend in quite well.

At this school we created a small area for reading and role play. The area is tidy and is a good focal point of activity at the front of the school.

Reading is so important in schools, more so with the onset of technology. What could be better than sitting down outside on a summers day and immersing the class in a great illustrated book in one of our outdoor Story Telling Areas !
