Forest School, Dens, Sandpit & Water Play

Ark Priory Primary Academy contacted us with the view to transform their existing play space. The school wanted to spark the children's imagination through water play, a sand pit and dens, as well as revamping their existing mud kitchen area. We also included a small trim trail in the space and incorporated the use of colour through the canopy roofs on the sand pit and branch den.

A similar project to this would cost approx £45,000

“I am so pleased that we chose to work with Natural Playscapes to develop our Early Years Outdoor Area! It is a project that we have wanted to develop for a long time and we could not have been happier with the consultation advice, designs and installation service we received from Natural Playscapes at every stage in our project. Prior to the development we felt our area lacked opportunities for sustained, child led explorative learning and that the weather heavily impacted on how much we could use the space. We wanted to develop an area that could be used for our youngest children to develop the characteristics of effective learning in the outdoors in all weathers. Jo and her team fully embraced our brief and used their expertise to advise and complete a design for us. Jo’s past experience as an Early Years Teacher filled me with confidence and helped me to understand the learning opportunities we could provide for our children.  We are a month into our new school year and our Nursery and Reception children are delighted with our new area. From sandcastles to mud pies and waterfalls, the area is proving to provide endless opportunities for the imagination! I cannot wait to see the impact this has Ark Priory’s children in the future!” - Sarah Charlton, Head of Early Years

“Natural Playscapes was the number one choice for our new EYFS outdoor area. The team worked with our EYFS practitioners at every step of the journey from initial planning to implementation to make sure the new area matched our high expectations of outdoor learning for our pupils. I am delighted with the results, and so are our pupils!”
