Why did you want to develop your playground?
The pupils at Riverhead Infant School love spending time outside exploring their natural environment. We wanted to develop an area of our playground that would encourage them to discover the natural world even further. We decided that creating a space in our playground for outdoor learning, primarily based around science and discovery, would give pupils a hands-on experience and connect them with nature.
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
Playforce made science the most fun! Their Discovery range of equipment has clearly been designed to make outdoor learning approachable for any pupil. The Weather Station was the perfect addition to our playground and our School Grounds Consultant gave us lots of hints and tips about how other schools had incorporated it into their science lessons. The children loved watching the playground get developed and they felt proud to be part of it.
