THE PADDOCK

An open space owned by Purton Parish Council located next to Purton Village Hall to the rear of the car park.  A managed useable space for outdoor learning by young chidlren within Purton.

The Council agreed to the use of this outdoor space to encouarge young children to learn and grow in the great outdoors in a controlled, supervised environment. 

The Paddock is being currently set with large tractor tyres which will be filled with new seedings to demonstrate to children the principles and understanding of where their food and plants/flowers come from.

Seeds will be sown, composting with worms will be watched, stream dipping undertaken and a short safe walk from their class environment.

Volunteer Day - On Sunday 28th April a small group of volunteers started work :)

TRIAL SESSION
Today (Tuesday 2nd July 2019) from 1.20-2.20pm  we carried out our first trial session with the amazingly well behaved children from Peardrop ChildCare.  8 Children entered the area with awe and excitment.  They were mesmerised with the hidden gem that was now open to them to explore.  Tiny hands watered the plants, sowed seeds, found bugs, played games, made garden crowns and flags and were delighted in this amazing outdoor adventure.
