Parents build Magical New Outdoor Learning Space for Killigrew School with the help of local businesses.

A playground at Killigrew Nursery and Primary School in Chiswell Green, St Albans has been transformed into an excellent new Outdoor Learning Space, thanks to the dedication of a group of parents and the generosity of local businesses in St Albans.

Headed by reception class teaching assistant Laura Dove and parent Maria Meyer, the parent team gave up their time to create a space with three distinct zones: Discover, Experiment and Imagine.

Exciting and interesting apparatus within these zones, such as the “Phonics Fun House”, a puppet theatre/stage, science benches, giant weighing scales, the "Adding Machine", fairy tree and a huge story telling chair have been built to allow the teaching staff to present subjects including science, maths, literacy, art and music to young pupils in a fun and accessible way.

Miss Mylotte, Head teacher of Killigrew Primary school said: “The new equipment in the Outdoor Learning Space is fantastic. We’re always striving to enhance the way we deliver the curriculum to make learning really enjoyable for our pupils." 

“I would like to say a huge thank you to the hardworking and talented parents involved. Especially Maria and Richard Meyer of PEP Ltd who spearheaded the project, Bevan from Kiwi Greenfingers and Nick Clarke from Henwood Contracts. Local sponsors included: Travis Perkins Bricketwood, Homebase St Albans, Collinson Hall and Lawsons Colney Heath.


Elle and Florence from Sunshine Reception Class agreed and said: “We like the new fairy tree and the giant story telling chair."
