Learning from home can be a little dull, especially if you're a primary school student.
That's why Berrima Public School acting assistant principal Joanne Kennedy created a mini village called Spoonville located outside the boundary of the school on Quarry Street.
Ms Kennedy said the village would contain spoons that were decorated by the students and their parents to look like characters.
"Children and adults decorate wooden spoons to create 'spoony' characters', and place them in Spoonville," Ms Kennedy said.
"The materials used has to withstand the weather and abide by public health orders when installing or visiting.
"At the moment, the village is buzzing with friendly and fantastical characters."
The idea for Spoonville originated in Berkshire, England as a way to cheer up the local community during COVID-19.
It has spread from England to Australia and across the world.
Ms Kennedy said the main aim was to make life learning at home more enjoyable.
"We want to involve children and their families in a creative activity while learning from home that could be shared with the school and wider community," she said.
"It's a bit of fun and a way to communicate with each other without being together.
"Children of essential workers who were attending school made spoon characters as well and decorated the fence with chalk as a backdrop to Spoonville."
Spoonville will remain until early next term.
