Outdoor Learning and Play
The latest and greatest of our South Wales Projects
Working across the United Kingdom, Pentagon Play has transformed over 10,000 playgrounds and improved the educational opportunities for 500,000 children!
Every project that we, as a company, get to work on is extremely special to us and that is why we do what we do!
As our company grows, so does the massive quantity of locations that we get to work within! So we have decided to highlight some of our most spectacular areas, and this week, it's South Wales! Operating in the South Wales area gives us the amazing opportunity to visit some of the beautiful scenery and collaborate with a number of enthusiastic schools on play projects!
Our hard-working and excited playground consultant, Chloe Pope, a resident of South Wales herself, has taken the reins of this region and her projects so far have been outstanding!
Come with us as we explore some of the latest projects that Chloe and the team have helped to create.
Switching up the learning environments at Fleur-De-Lys Primary School
Looking to add some extra learning space to their school premises, but not looking to add an extension to the building, Fleur-De-Lys Primary School were struggling to come up with an ideal solution.
With Pentagon’s Bespoke 5m Gazebo, the pupils at this Welsh School now have a stunning learning environment where they can take a breath of fresh air whilst still continuing all of the learning fun.
Complete with a Giant Chalkboard mounted to the side and Perch Benches surrounding the inside, this Gazebo comes with all of the benefits of a typical classroom, with the additional blessing of the stunning Welsh views.
Taking in the sea air whilst doing their times tables will be such an amazing feature for this primary school!
A Sports Ground in Barry
A stunning sports facility has now been incorporated into the learning environment of Oakfield Primary School in Barry.
Wishing to utilise their outdoor space to its full potential, Oakfield Primary School contacted Pentagon seeking the installation of a MUGA (Multi-Use Games Area).
Fenced off to create a specific space for sports games, P.E lessons and independent play, this primary school now has a dedicated sector of their premises to enjoy their break time.
Surfaced to be ideal for a multitude of ball games, our MUGA can be used by all ages and incorporated into an abundance of lesson plans and activity ideas!
It really is the ideal multi-purpose space for any school.
Putting some mindfulness into practice at Pengam Primary School
This Caerphilly School has provided the ideal mindfulness space for their pupils in the busy school environment.
Schools can often be overwhelming places for little learners with the sheer amount of knowledge they absorb daily; equipping them with a safe space to unwind is essential.
WigWams are an excellent method of giving pupils the private space that they may need to relax their mind and prevent sensory overload.
Quiet time is something children need, as well as adults.
Having the area with the Grass-Topped Seats is perfect as well as they create an open communication zone for children to sit and talk with their teachers and peers.
Simple additions like these to a play area can transform a child’s educational experience by improving their concentration levels and communication skills.
Learning Through Play in Pembrokeshire
An Active Play Design like no other, Roch Community School tailored their design to their educational wishes with the help of learning consultant, Chloe.
Adding one of our most popular climbing frames, The Tryfan Climber, to their wishlist, Chloe worked with the school to ensure that they had the ideal safety surfacing necessary to make risk-taking possible without the danger.
This Active Play Provision will really make a difference to the pupils at this school, giving them the facilities to enhance their gross motor skills, their risk evaluation and their agility.
We love being given the opportunity to expand our Playground Locations and being able to work with schools in Wales such as these amazing schools was such an honour for us!
