Vivid range of New Markings at Lady Alice Primary
Our installation team travelled North West from our office in Newcastle Upon-Tyne to Glasgow to install a range of vivid new playground markings for Lady Alice Primary School.
Phonics is a method of teaching children to read by correlating and recognising sounds with symbols in the alphabet. Phonics is now recommended as the first strategy that children should be taught in helping them to learn to read. Children are taught the sounds first, then match the letters to them. The phonic frog is a fun way for children to learn the symbols whilst having fun jumping from sound to sound. Next, the team installed this Co-ordinate Grid.
Coordinates are numbers which determine the position of a point or a shape in a particular space. In primary schools, children are taught Cartesian coordinates, which are introduced at KS2 in year 4. After that, the team installed these Calculating Caterpillars.
A great, colourful and fun teaching aid for children of all ages. Calculating caterpillars helps children with adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing whilst having fun. The children are given a sum by the teacher, then run from the first caterpillar to the next. When they have worked out the answer they jump into the box and shout out the correct answer. Then the team installed this A-Z Dragon.
After that, the team installed this Mirror Me.
Lastly, these Phonemes were installed.
The phonemes consist of 16 x 400mm coloured disks with 16 different phonetic sounds. These are used to teach children the different sounds that make up words in a fun play environment. For any more information regarding what we do please visit www.first4playgrounds.co.uk
