The first blue coats of the classroom feature walls have been painted and the sink units are being fitted.   The toilets are being worked on and the picture shows the special low yellow sink unit base for the reception class and a pile of doors all made of sustainable wood.

This week sees preparations for the playground and surround hard surfaces. Careful levelling, skilful rolling and clever edging mean the space is ready for the first of the top coats of tarmac. The area outside the pre-school part of the foundation unit will be a soft play surface.  The building teams are looking forward to clean surfaces round the school as it will mean most of the mud is covered up and the site will be much cleaner as the finishing touches are added.

These pictures catch some of the views that in a few short months will no longer be there when the building is finished. During the early part of January the West Camel Road has been reduced to one lane and traffic lights used for safety. This is allowing for the sewage pipe to be connected to the one that goes through the new housing. Coming up soon the mains electric and water will be connected along with the gas for heating and hot water boiler.

It is fascinating to see the various dedicated spaces being built. These include the toilets, corridors, library, small group rooms and the new commercial kitchen. Pictures also show what the entrances and main office look like with really welcoming hatch spaces.

As the inside of the school is emerging the outside is also coming on well. The hardstanding base for the new outdoor play spaces, playgrounds and entrances is being finalised. The warm creamy colour of the walls is also being added in the final layer of render.  If you look up to the side of the hall you can see what the colour will look like.
