Today, the children have been told about OPAL play and how it will transform their lunchtimes.

Did you know that play makes up 20% of school life? Your child's play per academic year in school is 231 hours (equivalent to 37 days which is 7.4 weeks)!

The program takes 18 months to complete with the school site being developed during this period, with the children fully involved in the process. Have a look at the attached video which shows a school that has already been on the journey.

We are having a 'soft start' this term before we really go for it in September! On May 20th, the children from Foundation to Year 6 will mix at playtimes and be able to access the whole school site (apart from the school woods). There will be music playing and equipment such as chalks, bubbles, dressing up, small world play, teddies.

The Opal Play team (who will be working hard to make lunchtimes amazing for your children) are:

Mrs Keightley - Curriculum Lead.
Mrs Broadhead - Play Coordinator.
Mrs Reader - Parent Champion
Mrs Henson - Governor Champion.

Over this term, we will be giving families a regular update in the weekly newsletter, hopefully sharing some pictures to show how it is going as well as asking for any items that you may have lying around that you no longer need.
