A Hop, Skip and a Jump into Adventure!
Pupils, Staff, Governors and visitors were thrilled to have Penny Butterill, Madam Mayor of Nantwich cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the new Early Years Outdoor Area at Nantwich Primary Academy and Nursery. Madam Mayor and visitors were able to tour the area and experience the exciting learning opportunities the children have on offer every day.
The new Gravel Pit and Water Play Areas were particularly popular with both children and visitors, as well as the Mud Kitchen filled with apples from trees in the grounds of the academy. The slide, tyres, roll bars and balance beam had all the children eager to show off their talents too. Inside the new canopy, children entertained the visitors in the new Performance Area and practised their writing skills at the Writing Station.
Sue Spence, Principal, commented, ‘We are thrilled with our new Early Years Outdoor Area! The wonderful learning opportunities it enables our Nursery and Reception children to experience ensures the best possible start to their school life. Every child is able to enjoy high quality meaningful first hand exploration outdoors, no matter the weather! I would like to thank St Bart’s Multi Academy Trust, Playsound and Buildbase for their support in creating this rich learning space.’
The Academy very much welcomes the opportunity to give prospective parents a tour of the school. This can be arranged by contacting the school office on 01270 685000.
