Kingshill Friends Association held lots of fundraisers, including sponsored cake sales and discos, as it raised more than £2,000 towards the initiative.

The money paid for a new seat and some benches to be set up in the playground to cater for a whole class of children.

Pupils at Kingshill Church School have been learning a wide range of topics outside to make the most of the summer weather.

Headteacher Jan Thomson said the new equipment has already proved to be a good addition to the school.

She added: “It can be used for storytelling, drama, maths, science and arts and all the curriculum subjects.

“It’s lovely, it’s made a big difference already and given us more opportunities to take classes outside.
