Colourful Playground Shelter in Essex
Posted on 14/03/2017
We installed a bright and colourful Motiva Linear at Ravens Academy, bringing their play area back into use all year round.
Project – Motiva Linear creates outdoor playground shelter at Ravens Academy
Product – Motiva Linear
Requirement – For any kind of activity there is a secret to growth.
Now that doesn’t necessarily mean actual rest. It simply means a break, a chance to go in another direction. For children who are learning at Primary School, working hard in lessons, the rest and growth come from expansive play and using their minds in a very different way!
Being able to spend time outside, stretching out, running and being physically active is the most essential part of learning as it is during these periods that the lesson learnt can ‘bed in’ whilst children are concentrating on something else.
However, there is a simple enemy to this kind of play, the weather!
When we have open playgrounds and bad weather, children can get frustrated at not being able to spread their imaginary wings and run around, letting go.
That’s where an outdoor playground shelter comes in, covering the area in a way that means the weather will never prevent this essential activity from taking place.
Some of these shelters are bigger than others and we recently installed a fantastic outdoor shelter at Ravens Academy in Essex.
Solution – We installed a bright and colourful Motiva Linear at Ravens Academy, bringing their play area back into use all year round. Installed at 15000mm x 4000 & 5400mm x 4990mm, this Motiva Linear covers a lot of space. Using a yellow (RAL 2013) paintwork we also added matching Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering in matching Dura-Coat™ finish and to complete the look we added plastic multi coloured fencing.
Result – This playground space is now contained and full of colour, making it a great place to play all year round and ensure that the learning at Ravens Academy is supported by letting imaginations run wild!
