CHILDREN and staff from a Burnley school are celebrating after they were awarded funding from the Big Lottery.

The cash, given to Briercliffe Primary School, was used to buy 30 DSi consoles and a library of games, both to encourage, stimulate and help the children engage in their learning.

The consoles will be used throughout school, during reward time to encourage continuous good behaviour, extra curricular fun and educational sessions both after school and lunch times and they are to be incorporated into whole class teaching and group work.

Staff said they were “thrilled and excited” to have received the funding.”
