Loose Parts Play

Loose Parts Play

Our infant department, in collaborating with our Nursery have been busy working outside on ‘Loose Parts Play’. 

What is Loose Parts Play?

Empty boxes, ropes, string, pipes, pieces of wood, natural materials such as leaves, petals, shells… this is known as Loose Parts Play and encourages learning, growth and development in young children.

Playing with loose parts can build on children’s learning through:

  • Increasing physical activity.
  • Enhancing cognitive skills.
  • Increase focus and concentration.
  • Boost natural curiosity and build on problem solving skills.
  • Invite and encourage conversation and collaboration.
  • Develop critical thinking skills.

With loose parts the possibilities are endless!  The materials have no set rules therefore allowing the children to be adventurous and creative as their imagination allows them to be.

Your Child Deserves The Very Best in Primary Education
