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.
