Learning has gone into the open air at Legsby Primary School with the creation of a new outdoor classroom.

“This was a wasted space before but it has now been made into a fantastic additional learning area,” said headteacher David Miskell.

And it has all been a 
combined effort, with the children having a considerable amount of input as to how the area should look,

The school funded the canopy, so the area can be used in all weathers, while the parents, teachers and friends association helped with the purchase of the Astroturf, which the children had chosen.

And the children’s enterprising project of selling jam over the past year helped by ‘splodges’ chalkboards for the walls.

“It has been a big outlay for the school,” added Mr Miskell.

“You are never sure how these things are going to work, but it is fantastic - 
better than I ever could have 
imagined.”

The area will be used by the Key Stage 2 pupils, but some of the younger pupils took a break from their lessons to check it out, along with Teaching assistant Sara South, headteacher David Miskell and the school’s new administrator Jayne Dean.
