Brightening the outside learning environment at Henry Bloom Noble Primary School

Thursday 30th August 2018 |

We were delighted to receive a call for help from Reception Teacher Mrs Platten at Henry Bloom Noble Primary School in Douglas, who was looking to brighten up the important outside learning environment for the children, starting with getting all the walls painted a brilliant white.

Mrs Platten told us why it was so important. "Outside learning environments are such an important part of the learning process. It provides a completely different environment for the children which keeps them engaged and helps them adapt to different surroundings and situations. I would really like to thank Hartford who has not only provided the white paint, but also some lovely bright red and green paint for our mushroom table and chairs that we are going to build out of old cable reels, which I know the children will love.”

Mrs Platten has promised to share a picture of the finished area and the mushroom table with our Facebook page when it’s complete.

Pictured with Mrs Platten (far right) is one of the great teams from Barclays who regularly donate time in the community through their 'Make a difference days' and had offered to help with the painting and some gardening work.
