Staff had shared aims and worked together as a team to have a successful outcome. The effective use of ICT equipment is now embedded in the planning to insure it has a purpose Through documenting the childrens progress in the outdoor environment, the teachers and parents have become partners in the childrens learning Children have gained confidence especially in Communication, Language and Literacy and the use of ICT equipment.
