Children at a Royston school are letting their imaginations run wild thanks to the opening of new climbing equipment.

On Monday children and teachers alike at Icknield Walk First School gave a three cheers and a hearty thank you to members of the Parents Teacher Association, as the climbing equipment was officially opened.

The play equipment and safety surface underneath were both purchased by the PTA, who also raised money for a quiet area in the playground last year.

Headteacher Jane Sherwood said: “The children love the climbing equipment.

“It is good not only for motor skills development but it also allows for imaginative development – the equipment can be a castle or a puppet theatre, for example.

“The children have all had an opportunity to play on it – they have been taught to climb up and down safely and they all enjoy it when it is their turn.”

The school is welcoming anyone with young children who are interested in seeing the nursery at work to come along to an open day tomorrow from 9.30am until 11am.
