TWO Rocks Primary School recently added colourful, innovative playground resources to its premises.
Media and marketing committee member Laura Head said the vibrant thermoplastic playground markings integrated concepts of literacy, numeracy and geography into student’s play.
Miss Head said they encouraged children to use their problem-solving skills.
“Designs include alphabet sequences, number lines and grids, board games, targets, compasses and mazes,” she said.
“This fresh approach to bringing learning outside has been celebrated by students from Kindergarten to Year 6, with playground markings spread across the whole school.”
Principal Elizabeth Wildish said play times were an essential part of children’s learning, and had the effect of bringing educational experiences outside reinforced skills taught in the classroom.
“Through the use of these new playground resources, students are actively engaging in problem-solving play, and encouraging their classmates to do so as well,” she said.
