Literacy Garden and Kindergarten Play Space


Literacy Garden 

We are blessed at Westwood to have had the opportunity to create two outdoor classroom spaces in the 2016-2017 year.  Our Literacy garden is available to be used by all our classrooms and features a stage, seating, picnic tables, gardens, trees and open (but sheltered) space.  Our students love coming into this space to have quiet reading or writing time, to present projects and to participate in Reader’s Theatre.  We even held our first assembly in this space for Grades 2 and 3 in June!

Kindergarten Natural Play Space

Our Kindergarten classes will be starting the 2017 year being able to explore, imagine and create in our new outdoor classroom designed by our Kindergarten teachers just for Kindergarteners.  It even includes a slide and tunnel for imaginative play.  More photos to come as our students enjoy this space!
