Parents’ dedication combined with the generosity of local businesses has resulted in a new outdoors learning area for youngsters at a St Albans school.
A playground at Killigrew Nursery and Primary School in Chiswell Green, St Albans, has been transformed into three distinct zones to bolster skills across the curriculum.
Headed by reception class teaching assistant Laura Dove and parent Maria Meyer, the project encourages pupils to discover, imagine and experiment.
The zones feature a phonics fun house to help develop literacy skills, a puppet theatre/stage, science benches, giant weighing scales and an adding machine.
A huge story-telling chair has also been built to allow teachers to present subjects including art and music in a fun way.
