St. Leonard’s C of E Primary School

Streatham - London

2012 Project

“The project ran very smoothly and EPE responded well to any changes and modifications. They went out of their way to ensure that the project went smoothly and on time. The children love using the musical instruments as well as relaxing under the hexagonal shelter.” Mr A. Pizzoferro  – Deputy Head Teacher

What were the reasons for developing your outdoor space?
“To develop the outdoor space as an educational and recreational resource” Explained Mr. Pizzoferro.

How we transformed the play area to provide outdoor learning opportunities for the children:
Making use of an existing area overgrown with shrubs and weeds our team were put to task to clear the spoil in preparation for the installation. Next was the constructing of the Hexagonal Shelter and Musical Instruments, they were laid out to the plan approved by the school and set into the ground. This stage was all completed during the June Half Term to reduce any disruption to the school. The Softbond Recycled Rubber Mulch Surfacing was then laid around the area, a swirl design was added using both Blue and Green colours to brighten up the area. To complete the installation the roof of the Hexagonal Shelter was fixed firmly in place and a bespoke Wheelchair Access Ramp was added to the decking area to allow the entire area to be accessible.

How the children will benefit from the new play area:
The Tubano Drums, Eye Chimes, Imabarimba and Flying Amadinda have been chosen to encourage Sensory and Imaginative play within the new play environment. Many children can use each instrument at the same time improving their social and interaction skills and letting them play melodic music straight away. Playing the four instruments can be physically and musically rewarding for any child. The Hexagonal Shelter provides a safe place to meet and socialise. It can be used to sit and relax during break times, as a base for playground games, storytelling or even as a castle, the uses are endless as they are governed by the children’s own imagination!
