Byron Wood School celebrated their £35000 revamp with a visit from the Lord Mayor in December. Parents cooked a feast to celebrate the opening of the new facilities.

The new play area is made from an all weather carpet which allows the children to play out even in the wet. The area offers a selection of a sandbox, tree seats, and a wendy house for the children to enjoy. They plan to build a nature garden which will give the class the chance to plant and grow their own vegetables. Councillor Graham Oxley officially opened the school’s new play area and indoor refurbishment, saying,

“It’s excellent. It’s a very nice, safe environment for youngsters. I’m sure it will make them enjoy it even more. The right environment can do that.”

Nursery manager Jo Smith said,

“We wanted the Lord Mayor here toofficially open it, to celebrate what we’vedone. The children are really excited about it all.”

Tony Carter, headteacher of Byron Wood School, said,

“We are really excited about the new play area that we have been able to develop for the nursery.>”We are looking forward to redeveloping the play area for the reception class as well.”
