New equipment provides play time boost
PLAY time at a village school has been given an extra dose of thrills, laughs and games after pupils received thousands of pounds worth of new equipment.
Children at Risby Primary, in Aylmer Close, are getting to grips with the trim trail equipment, which includes rolling logs and a tightrope.
The new addition to the playground was selected by pupils on the school council after receiving about £5,000 from the Big Lottery Fund.
A separate climbing wall has also been bought with the money.
Christine Anthony, PE co-ordinator at the school, said the equipment was needed.
She said: “Play time is always an exciting time and children were finding there wasn’t really enough to immerse them.
“This is intended to improve their play time and it’s given them more challenges.
“It’s been great and is used by both the pre-school and the after school club has come across to use it.”
