Wheldon Infant School & Nursery
Francis Street, WF10 1HF Castleford
01977 723070

Our school is located in the centre of this
photograph. You can see the large playing field at
the back of our school. The Nursery has its own
enclosed playground and grassy area for outdoor
play. A new classroom has been built onto the
back of the school to serve as an upper foundation stage unit.

Here is a photograph of the
new classroom.
Look at its unusual shape.
The gardens were not
finished. See below how
they were finished off by
the Civic Trust and read the newspaper cutting about it.

Youngsters at Wheldon Infant School & Nursery in Castleford welcomed
special visitors.
Castleford Civic Trust donated £25 to buy shrubs and plants for two
small gardens outside the recently opened reception class extension.
Trust members called at the school to help the children plant the flower
beds. A Trust spokesman said: "The Civic Trust has been visiting the
school every year for the last ten years and we have planted trees,
bulbs, shrubs and bedding plants. The attractive grounds are a
testament to the Trust's involvement and interest in the school."
