Examples of Play Equipment That Help Develop Motor Skills

Imagine being a child stepping onto the new playground built in Horsens, Denmark for the first time. Excitement to try out every piece of equipment and then moving onto something else would probably follow. By far, the large COROCORD net located at this playground is the most popular meeting place for children to do multiple exercises and have fun at the same time. Other favorite piece of equipments are the traditional swings and swinging nests which allows close interaction among a group of friends.

PlayGround Expansion Completed at Reculver Primary School in the UK

The staff and students at Reculver Primary School in the UK wanted to expand their original playground that would encourage high activity levels in a safe outdoor play environment and meet the special needs of children who were visually and/or hearing impaired. This particular consideration ensured that no child with a disability felt left out when playing with their classmates. The new playground was also designed to handle greater amount of play in various types of weather, PE delivery and the creation of multiple skills long term. In fact, the new resource play area has offered more active playtime for students and the school's objective to provide five hours of high quality PE activity everyday.
