New Playground Equipment

New equipment 16446 1280 720 90

The school has purchased new playground equipment for the children to use at playtimes. It has been a huge success and has created 'zoned' areas where the children can skip, balance, play basketball, play football or create structures with the large shapes that you can see in the photograph above. There is also, of course, the quiet area based around our fabulous mosaic and the benches that surround it. The children like to read, chat or draw here. Please see the Gallery for some photos of the children enjoying their new equipment.
