NEW FEATURES IN SCHOOL PLAYGROUND
In recent years, we have been successful in bidding for extra funding from the Big Lottery, Mayor's Air Quality Fund and Healthy Schools Capital Grant and as a result have added various features to our school playground to make it an exciting open space which our children can enjoy everyday. They spend countless hours using the Pergola, the stage area and all its musical offerings including steel drums and the bongo panel. It doesn't seem so long ago that we had our popular table tennis tables installed which continue to keep the children entertained. Over the February half term we were lucky to have the Living Wall feature built into the back of the playground adding some wonderful greenery whilst providing learning opportunities. And over the Easter holidays we made further improvements to the playground by replacing two items of the Trim Trail with an exciting climbing cylinder and tunnel, designed to challenge the children physically and to be brave and manage risk safely. The children have returned to school from the holidays excited to give these new features a go; take a look when you are next in the playground!
