St Lawrences Primary School


With Friends of St Lawrence’s school kindly agreeing to do some fundraising to help to pay for the new equipment, St Lawrence’s School’s main priority for the new equipment was to give the children the opportunity to be able to climb.

Project Brief:

 

St Lawrence’s School wanted to change their playground so that the children had something exciting to do at break times. They were looking for climbing equipment that was challenging and had real holding power for the children. St Lawrence’s looked in the market place but found most products on offer were linear boards that had no real challenge. They were looking for something unique.

The Result:


KOMPAN installed the Bloqx 2, a dynamic and unique climbing product. Children of all abilities can use the Bloqx and build up their confidence as they develop their cognitive and physical skills by changing their route or angle to climb the unit. On the top space of the Bloqx 2 is a comfortable meeting and social place is shaped where the two modules meet. The Bloqx also comes with curriculum compliant teaching materials, where the school can use the unit to teach maths.

 

“IT IS MARVELLOUS TO SEE THE CHILDREN MAKING UP THEIR OWN GAMES, PLAYING HIDE AND SEEK AND INTERACTING WITH EACH OTHER IN SUCH A POSITIVE WAY.
WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE ARRIVAL OF A NEW MATHS CO-ORDINATOR IN THE NEAR FUTURE SO THAT WE CAN REALLY USE THE MATHS LEARNING MATERIALS WHICH COME WITH THE BLOQX AND GET THE KIDS OUTDOORS AND LEARNING MATHS IN THE REAL WORLD, IN AN ACTIVE WAY. WE WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THE BLOQX EQUIPMENT TO OTHER SCHOOLS.”
