However Kersey Primary School says the new outdoor early years will not only give youngsters hours of enjoyment, but also help with their learning too.

The Cherry Hill school wanted to replace its early years outdoor area after staff said it was "looking a bit tired".

There is also a climbing frame, which head of school Jess Damant said would help the pupils' coordination skills.

She said the outdoor area, created by Pentagon Play, would help the children who benefit from it to improve their social skills as well.

The outdoor area was opened by Kersey's two oldest residents, Jack Stiff and Mary Smith, on Wednesday, July 17.
