ADVENTUROUS pupils at Reed First School can now get to grips with some new state-of-the-art play equipment.
The school's antiquated climbing frame has been replaced by new equipment, including a climbing frame, a slide, and a set of monkey bars.
Head teacher Alison Thomas said: ""The aim of the school is not only to prepare pupils academically for the outside world, but to encourage social interaction, physical development and achievement of goals.
"Playtime is just as important as classroom activities and this equipment encourages all of these."
