Thermoplastic Playground markings have an important role to play when it comes to outdoor learning in school playgrounds. A safe and stimulating playground can help in the learning as well as development stages of a child. Here at Project playgrounds, we value the safety and learning processes equally. Our website aims to explain how these playground markings are used, and allows you to have a closer look at the benefits it can provide to all children with the various playground marking styles available.
Uses of Playground Markings
School playgrounds are a designated safe haven for children where they can find delight in outdoor activities whilst still within the walls or boundaries of a school environment. Most of Britain’s playgrounds have some kind of playground marking on them. The type of playground markings available are limitless, from traditional games like hopscotch to sports courts, Sudoku or friendship areas – If you can imagine it, we can make it into a marking.
One of the best things of using Thermoplastic playground markings is they can be customized to cater for all ages and interests. Playground markings with timeless and distinctive designs encourage the children’s imagination to run wild, promote learning, and expand the learning experience beyond the class room.
Fun Way of Learning
When using the playground as an extension of the classroom, the concepts of early learning are taught in new, unconventional, interactive manner. There are various ways where English, phonics, and Mathematics can be incorporated on any school playground.
Whether the existing playground markings are used in creatively coming up with a unique game or enjoying the designed number-based games, children will always have fun. These playground markings provide a multipurpose means to learn which is important in learning development all through school life.
Sports & Fitness
A lunchtime break is when a child is at its most active state and this is encouraged when playground markings are available. Children will be able to engage in games suitable to their age as there are many sports designs to choose from such as basketball, volleyball, tennis courts, and even a smaller scale football pitch.
Interpersonal skills are honed and nurtured among children when they are provided with the right tools where they are able to engage and participate in various physical activities. Sports have always been used as one of the greatest ways to instill important values such as resilience, teamwork, and communication. The school gymnasium or sports hall setting is not the only way children can learn.
Interpersonal Skills development
Academic learning takes place in the class room and extending it outside into the playground is where social learning can take place alongside the academic. Different designs allow the children to work independently and as a team by using these creative playground markings. A variety of designs are available from the traditional sports markings to designs like maps, mazes, dart boards, throwing targets, and life-sized board games which provide a great opportunity for children to learn to work collaboratively.
Playground markings, designed specifically to stimulate the mind and imagination, promote camaraderie among children and allows them to work hand in hand with other children improving their interpersonal skills. This stage is crucial for younger children and these markings provide a fun and educational experience to nurture different skills like motor skills, coordination of the hands and eyes, as well as spatial awareness. Playground markings can be used also creatively to teach children how to form letters and stay on their lines. Interaction combined with precision of actions is the result of continuous practice of these games and will be a part of a child’s routine breaks at school.
