A new outdoor learning space has been designed to help boost children's learning and physical abilities in a safe and secure environment.
The play area, created by Newby Leisure for Topcliffe Academy in Birmingham, incorporates messy play, sand play, water play and more.
A play stream takes centre stage to coincide with a pergola, walkway and bespoke outdoor classroom/reading shelter. Elsewhere, a timber matrix has been bedded into a space of play bark and artificial grass for children to run on, while a Clamber Stack in the corner of the playground encourages climbing.
The design gives children the opportunity to run freely around the play environment and pick their point of play.
