Duke keeps an eye on lessons

Crown Wood primary in Bracknell got a royal seal of approval last week when the Duke of Gloucester officially opened new facilities.

The duke toured the new building before unveiling a plaque to mark the occasion and signing the visitors’ book.

He also visited three lessons, including a year 5 computing class, a year 6 class studying bridges and structures, and a year 1 PE lesson in the school playground.

Improvement works started at the school in 2010 and were completed earlier this year.

Antoinette Butler-Willis, Crown Wood’s headteacher, said: “This really has been an enormous project in terms of the difference it has made to our children. And look at this beautiful building that we now have.”

The duke added: “It’s a great pleasure to be here today. It was a good opportunity for everyone in the group to reflect and remember the old and to celebrate the new school building.”
