Icknield Primary's new open plan learning space

A new improved Early Years Foundation Stage learning space has been opened at Icknield Primary School by Luton North MP Kelvin Hopkins.

The £200,000 development which took only eight weeks to implement is an open plan area,with three separate teaching areas.

Headteacher Lyn Lyman said: “We originally had three reception classes in different parts of the school, making it difficult for children to access all the facilities at the same time.

“Our new space enables us to teach up to 90 children under the age of five in one location and brings huge benefits from sharing best practice among staff to allow the free flowing of child-initiated activities.”

She added: “The project enabled us to review the layout of the school and improve the facilities for hearing impaired pupils. We took full advantage of advice from design consultants and the council to make these far-reaching improvements in such a short time..”
