Playground Equipment For Key Stage 2
As Key Stage 2 learners progress and become more and more mature, they need to have access to an outdoor learning environment that still pushes them to achieve more.
At this stage in their development, children have identified certain strengths and weaknesses that they have and our innovative playground designs can help children develop their strengths further and help rectify their weaknesses. For instance, our Multi-Use-games-Area (MUGA) will give children the platform to practice a sport that they are naturally gifted at and a Wildlife Area can be used to introduce children to concepts such as PH levels which will help prepare them for topics in secondary school.
The children are keen and excited to go outside, they play imaginatively in the mud kitchen area, they love climbing, jumping and creating obstacle courses with the large blocks - and it’s super to see them developing their balance and core strength and exploring different ways to move and jump, which all helps with developing their gross motor skills for things like writing. They also have to challenge themselves to both analyse and to take risks. They love the climbing wall and again this builds muscle strength and is important for developing their fine and gross motor ability. The artificial grass has completely changed the appearance of the area and it means the outdoor area looks more tidy and with more appealing. It makes the whole area an outdoor space that reflects our approach to outdoor learning at BCS - it is welcoming yet still natural. The different areas are clearly defined encouraging independence and they support learning across the Early Years curriculumKay Smith – Bournemouth Collegiate Preparatory School, Dorset
Sam really brought the space to life for us, he could see how we could zone play into 2 new areas so that there was something for the younger children and something for them to grow into. It also helped us to the supervise play and make sure everyone has the chance of getting a go.Fiona Waterhouse – Longwick CE Combined School, Buckinghamshire

This is the second project that we have completed with Pentagon and it was as efficient and well managed as the first. This time around we have had 4 pieces of balance equipment, a bike storage area and lots of safety surface installed, all of which we are delighted with.Gavin Fowler - Cheddington Combined School, Buckinghamshire
