This Marimba is constructed from timber and sapele, a robust hardwood material and is available via Pentagon Play’s Online Shop for just £945 + VAT.

How will this prize benefit our pupils? 

Musical Instruments are hugely influential for your pupils' learning.  

Music is key in a child’s PSED and CLLD development as they learn to communicate through the medium of music and read notes and letters.

Pupils’ will develop the ability to use musical instruments as a method of supporting their mental well-being, retreating to the instrument for some calm-down time or exert their extra energy during break time! 

Pupils will also develop key socialisation skills such as turn-taking and conservational manners as they share this instrument with their peers.  

Music is also great for fine motor skills development as they learn to handle the beaters and how gentle or hard to hit the instrument. They will develop control and accuracy as well as grip!  

The benefits of musical instruments are endless!
