OPAL Playtimes

We are delighted to have signed up to work with OPAL on an 18 month project to improve playtimes here at Alderton Junior School starting in November 2021.


Please watch this space for updates and photographs of our work to develop play experiences for all our children over the coming months.

March 2022

In March we raised £460 towards a new sandpit by collecting loose change. Roding were the winning house with nearly £200 raised. Well done everyone!


We also enjoyed playing different games with the skipping ropes.

January 2022

The children have been out enjoying the winter sunshine with cardboard boxes and our new mud kitchen. The boxes have been used to make forts, as tables, to play Pokemon, as a catwalk and even to hide in!

November 2021

The children have so far been enjoying bubbles, chalk and extra balls and hoops at playtimes
