Wish List



As you will now be aware, we are developing our play provision at Churchill. We have identified 3 distinct phases to the development, beginning with the area the children currently use, and then expanding to encompass different parts of the school site. We are now starting to resource Phase 1. Below is our initial wish list and we would be grateful for any donations you (or grandparents, neighbours, friends etc) are able to make. Please ensure that anything donated is in good condition. For obvious reasons, we cannot accept broken items with sharp edges etc.


Wheeled Play

This will be limited initially due to the space available, but will then expand. Therefore initially we need some resources, but not lots.

  • 5 scooters or various sizes
  • 4 balance bikes
  • 3 large wheelie suitcases (the type that tilt to be pulled along)
  • 2 old pushchairs


Small World Play

  • Toy dinosaurs
  • Toy cars and trucks
  • My little pony ponies
  • Play mobile
  • Silvanians
  • Trees, hedges, scenery etc
  • Tough trays and stands
  • Etc etc


Den Building

  • Tarps
  • Blankets
  • Sheets
  • Throws
  • Pop Up Tent
  • Cord / rope


Dressing Up

Please note, we are not looking for costumes particularly, although a couple would be lovely. However, what we would really like are:

  • Jackets
  • Coats
  • Hats of all different types
  • Handbags and interesting other bags
  • Grown up dresses and shirts
  • Large scarves / sarongs / large pieces of ‘floaty’ material
  • Hi-vis jackets



Mud Kitchen and Café

  • Pots and pans
  • Utensils, especially large spoons and spatulas
  • Jugs
  • Mixing bowls (plastic or metal)
  • Plates and cups (plastic or metal)
  • Large serving spoons


Arts and Crafts

  • Chalks
  • Small watering cans
  • Buckets
  • Paint Brushes (large decorate your house type)
  • Paint rollers
  • Sponges
  • Wool
  • Fabric scraps



Phase 2/3

In the longer term, we are also looking for:

  • pallets,
  • cable reels,
  • planks,
  • broom handles,
  • sand toys

Whilst we do not need these yet, we can store a number of items and are aware that sometimes some of these might be harder to source than others, so are happy to have any that you find now and keep them for Phase 2.


As the project develops, we will refine and adapt our wish lists as we see what works well and what the children enjoy the most. Please do keep an eye on Dojo as well as on here, as we will endeavour to regularly post an updated list or to let you know when we have sufficient donations of a particular item.


Thank you in advance for your help, it is so very much appreciated.
