Designing a Playground

Posted by & filed under News.

Year 1 at St Augustine’s School have been learning about how we can meet our needs.

After exciting discussion on needs and wants the students decided that they “want” some school playground equipment.

In response to identifying their want, the students studied pedestrian safety and set out on a walk to Brelsford Park to see the types of equipment that could be used.

At the park the children looked at the following aspects; enjoyment, safety, comfort and aesthetics.
They will use this knowledge to design and build their own playground which might be suitable for our school. We can’t wait to see their designs!

Pictured are an excited Year 1 group as they head off to explore Brelsford Park!
