Children in Early Years at Fairfield School in Backwell have returned to school to find their very own Yellow Brick Road leading them safely to their classrooms.
Prospective parents can have a first look at the new feature including the all new purpose-built playground for the Reception class at upcoming special open days.
A programme of renovations took place at the independent day school and nursery over the summer holidays and this will be the first chance for families to have a look around the improved facilities.
The age-specific playground with a soft surface and a racetrack feature for children to run around, has been specially designed to appeal to four and five-year-olds. The outdoor space also boasts numbers and letters on the ground so children can continue their learning outside.
The first open day will take place on Friday 25 October from 9.30am and families can drop in during the morning to take a look around. A second open day will take place on Saturday 16 November from 10am-12pm (further information can be obtained from the school).
Fairfield School Headmistress, Lesley Barton, said: “We are so excited to show off the improvement to our outdoor space. The children have been thrilled with it so far so we are looking forward to showing parents at our open day.
“The new Reception playground is a particular highlight especially because the classroom opens directly on to it with new double doors, which will really encourage a free-flow learning experience.
“We have also created a new pedestrian access called the ‘Yellow Brick Road’ which leads children and parents safely to our Early Years Building which houses Nursery and Lambs.
“We are constantly developing the school and thinking of ways to improve our learning environment. Prospective parents can come along in October or November and find out more about our ethos, the standard of facilities and our fantastic teaching and support staff.”
