Youngsters at a Fenland school will have new educational toys and games to enjoy in September, thanks to a donation by the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society.

But children at Emneth Primary School enjoyed a taster of the toys before their summer holidays.

Gemma Chapman, manager of Norwich and Peterborough's Wisbech branch, donated various word and number games, as well as hand puppets for creative play.

They will be used to help children develop lively, inquiring minds and to encourage individual thinking.

Sue Rout, a classroom assistant, said: "We have been playing lots of games and have got a puppet show lined up already. Having Norwich and Peterborough come forward to offer its help was brilliant. It is really important to us to have support from our community."

Gemma said: "It felt great to donate all of the games and toys to the School. I hope that the children enjoy what we have donated and that there is as much learning going on as there is playing.
