Youngsters at a first school now have additional fun to keep them occupied during playtimes.
The Parent Teachers and Friends Association at All Saints' First School in Leek have splashed out £2,000 for a variety of new games and play equipment designed specifically for children to have fun outdoors.
The equipment includes tube telephones, footballs, a large Connect Four, Giant Jenga, pop-up tents and large dominoes. Chairman of All Saints' PTFA, Julie Chatterton, said: "We decided to buy this equipment as the children were lacking activities to do during playtimes outside."
Class Two teacher Leanda Mullen said: "The children have been really enjoying playing with the equipment.
"It is brilliant that our school has such a supportive PTFA."
All Saints' pupil, James Acres, aged five, said: "This new equipment has made playtimes really fun. I like playing with the footballs best."
Fellow pupil, Harry Mullen, aged eight, said: "I think it's nice of the PTFA to raise all the money for all this play equipment. All of it is my favourite."
Seven-year-old Thomas Salt said: "This new equipment has made playtime a lot more exciting."
Alex Chatterton, aged five, added: "I am glad we have the equipment to play outside with.
"My favourite are the tube telephones."
All Saints PTFA has also recently made available funds to have 'Rent A Beast' visit the Cheadle Road school which has given the pupils a chance to handle and care for a number of mini-beasts.
