MUD pies are on the menu at Ardgowan Primary after the children got an outdoor kitchen to expand their learning.

The special mud kitchen, made out of recycled wooden pallets, was donated to the school by the staff from Home Fix Scotland, the River Clyde Homes subsidiary company.

Equipped with pots, pans and other cooking utensils, it has all the right ingredients to help them with their education.

Matthew Brennan, four, and Ellie Duncan, five, who are both in P1, gave their new kitchen a big thumbs up.

Ellie said: "It's amazing.

"I'm going to make mud cupcakes."

Matthew added: "I'm going to make mud pies."

Class teacher Jane Morris has praised Home Fix Scotland enough for the kind kitchen donation.

She said: "We are delighted as we are developing our outdoor area which is designed to promote independence and imaginative play.

"The mud kitchen will allow the children to be creative and to enjoy an experience that they may not get otherwise.

"It's fabulous to have local businesses supporting our school."

Fiona Campbell,from Home Fix Scotland, said her colleague Robert Love designed and built the kitchen.

Another has been made for King's Oak Primary School, which they will donate at a later date.

Mrs Campbell said: "There's a big focus on learning and play and we are keen to work with the local community in any way we can.

"This is our first step to do that."
