CHILDREN at Kingsland Primary School have a sensational sensory room to enjoy thanks to a £15,000 donation.

The Wooden Spoon Charity awarded the Aberford Road school the money for the refurbishment of its nine-year-old sensory room, after headteacher Paula Trow contacted the organisation.

The room, which will benefit children with complex learning and physical needs, is now equipped with everything from an interactive infinity tunnel of colourful LED lights, to a bubble tube, touch wall, UV lighting and projectors.

It was officially opened at a disco event last month, by Wildcats captain Glen Morrison, together with representatives from the charity.

After cutting the ribbon, Mr Morrison also stayed to socialise with parents, pupils and staff, sign autographs and have his photograph taken.

Ms Trow said: “We are delighted with our new room, which will be of great benefit to our pupils with complex learning and physical needs.”

The Wooden Spoon charity was founded in 1983 when the England rugby team received the wooden spoon in the Five Nations. It helps children who are disadvantaged physically, mentally or socially.
