Each piece is designed to provide a different element of physical play and exercise different areas and skills. The above pieces focus mainly on balance, but engaging in play on these specific pieces of equipment can also help to improve co-ordination, muscle flexibility and bone strength too.
On top of the play apparatus Hand Made Places also installed a range of differentButton Stools, these provide a space for children to sit and engage in conversation with their peers.
This will also help to improve both communication and social skills.
On top of the play equipment, Hand Made Places’ partner Broxap also designed, manufactured and installed the ‘Wardale®’ and ‘Sheffield’ cycle shelters.
These shelters will encourage both pupils and staff to get involved in cycling to work, or school. Again going towards improving their physical health.
Following on from this, Kingsgate Primary School were so impressed with their KS1 equipment that they decided to come back to us for their older pupils too.
In addition to the equipment listed above, Kingsgate had the Nautilus Play Boat installed. The play boat features many different physically challenging elements which will help to promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
The Traverse Walls, Tunnels, Rope Climber, Scramble Net and Clatter Bridge, all work in harmony to enable children to build bone strength whilst also providing exercises which can improve muscle flexibility.
