New Northwold classroom installed in just hours
A west Norfolk school caused a stir this morning (Wednesday) when a new classroom was delivered and installed in a matter of hours.
The modular building at the Norman Primary School in Northwold, near Brandon, is expected to last for up to 20 years and was built off-site.
The walls were then slotted into place on the day, with the help of a crane which was able to enter the school grounds through the front after a wall was dismantled in preparation for the job.
The school previously had three classrooms, one of which was particularly small.
Head Carole Reich said the total cost of the modular classroom was about �100,000, some of which would come from the school's capital budget, and some from the Ely diocese.

She added: 'I think in the current climate it's an option you have to think about. All schools' capital budgets are reduced and building a new classroom would have cost far too much.
'We call it an eco-classroom so it's good for heating and really well insulated so it will be a really good space to help the school grow.'
