Abbey Primary School in Mansfield required two separate areas of playground equipment for different age groups, and therefore different abilities of pupils.
The school decided to use Hand Made Places for both areas so that the school’s equipment showed cohesion.
The areas, though somewhat different, did have similarities, meaning that as children move up the school there will be a consistency to their play apparatus.
Both areas had trim trails installed, however Hand Made Places worked with the school to ensure that the different trim trails suited the age group and ability of those pupils that it was targeted towards.
KS1 Playground Equipment.
The key stage one equipment which was installed included a trim trail which was both challenging and exciting for pupils aged 5-7.
This play area included colourful apparatus such as the ‘Spinning Mushrooms’ which were used as an interesting focal point amongst the timber trim trail.
The remainder of the trim trail focused on providing a physical play opportunity for the younger pupils.
As well as the trim trail equipment, Hand Made Places also installed the ever popular and immensely fun Amazon Rope Climber.
This great piece of equipment provides hours of fun and physical activity for pupils.
Both the KS1 and KS2 area had artificial grass with a shock pad under surface for the higher units. The grass looked at home with the natural looking timber units, and did not detract from the natural beauty of the surrounding areas.
