Each Stool comes already assembled with a cushion either in sage green or grey, which can be removed with ease by the children from the stool lid. They can then use the cushion to kneel or sit on when they commence to play.

Upon removing the cushion, a game will be shown on top of the stool’s lid. The games range from farmlands, and roadways for small-world play to sorting activities where the children can sort items of different sizes, shapes, and colours.

If needed the Stools can stack on top of each other to form higher seating options for taller children or adults.

Book Storage Solutions

Get rid of school cupboards and use one of our Bookcases on Wheels. They will solve any book storage issues whilst at the same time creating flexible reading zones across the classroom. This fantastic multi-faceted resource encourages children to self-select as well as being able to create a reading zone for children to quietly read in.

All of this leads to a love of reading and books as well as improving children’s literacy and reading development!

  1.  Acorn Self-Select Store:

Pentagon Play’s Acorn Self-Select Store is a wonderful outdoor storage solution to help outdoor learning and play all year round!

Benefits of the Acorn Self-Select Store:

  • Crafted from solid outdoor-treated plywood, each store has 3 sturdy shelves to support and stock supplies safely and hold everything you need to store. Each shelf has a safety lip, to ensure minimal risk of storage boxes slipping and causing injuries when children remove the boxes from the shelves.
  • Each shelf has a fully cleanable chalkboard strip, enabling children to label their resources and aiding self-selection for pupils. The top of the store also has a fully cleanable chalkboard strip so that each store can be marked individually for example – Maths Store, PE Store, English Store, etc.
  • With 2 central opening doors, they can be hooked securely wide-open for maximum access to all the resources as well as being safe for children so that the wind or children don’t slam them shut. When closing the doors, they can be bolted and padlocked for extra security.
  • Each store also comes with 6 large storage boxes (big enough for A4 books and documents to be stored in them.) Allowing the store to be neatly organised and categorised if needed. It also helps the store to be kept clean and neat for your children

  • All shelves have a cleanable chalkboard strip, allowing children to label their resources and promoting self-selection for pupils. Like the Acorn Store, the Sycamore Store has a chalkboard strip on the face of the roof for naming your store. For example – Maths Store, PE Store, English Store, etc.
