Hand Made Places have designed, manufactured and installed a range of playground equipment pieces for Thorntree Primary School in Middlesbrough.
The installed equipment needed to be spread over the entirety of the school to provide fun and interesting play spaces for the students.
Pupils can enjoy a wide range of different types of play, from imaginative play to physical play, as well as the installation of outdoor classrooms ensuring that children can enjoy learning through play.
Hand Made Places installed the Extra Large and Large Sand Pit. These two play areas allow for different types of play for a range of different ages.
Younger children can use the sand pits to display certain schemas, helping to aid in EYFS development.
Older children can learn about movement and look at how different animals and objects make certain tracks in the soft sand.
Also installed was the Barge and Longboat outdoor classrooms. These spaces give teachers a designated space to teach, whilst also being surrounded by a fun, themed environment.
The additional installation of the Sea Monster play sculpture can create a full imaginative world.
Millers Pond Climb-around, a Play Den and a Jungle Treehouse was also installed.
These pieces have elements of imaginative play, with fun themed areas, combining active play elements too.
