Igloo built... in a classroom!
NOT many children can boast having an igloo in their classroom.
Well, reception class pupils at Tewin Cowper School can.
The construction was the inspiration of teacher Katie Wright who, as part of a project learning about winter, decided the youngsters should actually see an igloo being built, block by block, in their classroom.
With support from the Tewin community, who supplied the required building blocks – four litre milk cartons – and the construction skills of school caretaker Bob Morgans, the dwelling evolved.
A spokesman for the Cannons Meadow school said the project complemented their new drive to be eco-aware and support sustainability.

“The igloo is both sturdy and capacious, housing up to four pupils at one time for their role-play fun,” the spokesman said.
“The problem will now be how to dismantle it!”
