Reception pupils at Bowsland Green Primary School in Bradley Stoke have been celebrating the installation of a new log climber in their garden, thanks to the generosity of a national supermarket chain.
Early Years Foundation Stage lead teacher Wendy Collins was successful in applying for a £4,000 grant through the Tesco Bags of Help scheme.
The Friends of Bowsland Green contributed a further sum of money to cover the remaining cost of the project.
Mrs Collins said:
“This climbing frame was chosen as the children need an opportunity to develop their gross motor skills. This frame presents a safe challenge for the children who are developing strength and balance. The open ended nature of this frame also supports development of imagination. The children have already been pretending that it is a castle and a ship. We plan to add drapes and big building blocks to further enhance these ideas. We are very grateful to Tesco for their financial contribution and to the Friends of Bowsland Green for the funds that they have raised.”
