Outdoor play at Barley Close gets a £10k boost
Published on: 30 Jan 2017
LEARNING and play has got even more fun at Barley Close Primary School thanks to a £10,000 grant to redevelop an outdoor learning area.
The school secured the money from the National Lottery to build an extended covered area, water feature, climbing equipment, story teller's chair and den area.
It will be used for nursery and reception aged children.
The work was completed by Pentagon in mid-December ready for use in the New Year.
Headteacher Jo Williams said: "The children in nursery and reception will be able to extend their learning opportunities in a lovely natural environment.
"Families also did lots of fundraising including a raffle and sponsored events which paid for a new covered sand pit.
"This is a great addition to the outdoor learning area which will benefit children for many years to come in our community."
