Our installation team travelled North West to Glasgow to install a range of vivid new playground markings for Lady Alice Primary School. These markings consisted of a Phonic Frog, Phonemes, a Mirror Me, a Co-ordinate Grid, Calculating Caterpillars and an A-Z Dragon. Firstly the team installed this Phonic Frog.

Phonic Frog

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.
