Early Years Foundation Play Equipment
As a child transition into early years playgrounds, their ability to interact and play becomes more important to their overall growth and social interaction. At this stage, children become more interactive in their everyday lives. Our playgrounds are designed to meet all government safety guidelines to ensure a child’s safety while maximising play value.
Key developmental areas of the early years Foundation Stage are:
- Developing a unique child.
- Understanding, developing and appreciating positive relationships.
- Enabling environments – valuing people and valuing learning.
Key Stage 1 (KS1) Play Equipment
Play equipment for growing bodies concentrating on developing gross motor skills; movements including jumping, as well as balance, agility, strength and coordination. Products challenge users and encourage controlled risk-taking. Imagination stations allow young people to immerse themselves in other worlds to develop communication through play.
Key Stage 2 (KS2) Play Equipment
With a focus advancing flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance skills, KS2 children should take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team. Haystack products, with no defined route, are perfect products for this age group and a continuation of non-prescriptive play for blossoming young explorers.
Key Stage 3+ (KS3+)
Key stage 3+ young people should be physically active for sustained periods of time to set them up to lead healthy, active lives. Students should take part in outdoor and adventurous activities which present intellectual and physical challenges, while being encouraged to work in a team, building on trust and developing skills to solve problems, either individually or as a group. Higher age equipment should allow young people to demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best from analysing their prior experiences. Combining acquired skills from younger ages with newly developing upper and lower body strength.
