Children at South Witham Primary School were introduced to indoor curling at their local village hall recently.
The youngsters were invited to the hall where members of South Witham Curling Club play their games. The club also invited them so they could present the school with a cheque for £250 which will be put towards the school’s new sensory garden. Maureen Reader, of the curling club, said the money came from the club’s football scratchcard game . She said: “We felt we should give the money to the village, so I went to the school and they said they were doing a sensory garden.” Reception teacher Elizabeth Seymour said the outdoor area was being redeveloped to include the sensory garden as well as a track for the children to ride their toy vehicles on, a quiet reflection area and a mini beast hotel. She said: “The sensory garden will have plants they can touch and lots of different smells and the more they can experience the more it will help develop their vocabulary and their skills.”
