Outdoor Covered Play Area in Cheltenham

Posted on 15/02/2017

Rowanfield Infant School
A&S Landscape was approached to help add an outdoor learning area at Rowanfield Infant School in Cheltenham so they too could take advantage of a change of scenery!

Project – Motiva Duo creates outdoor play and learning area at Rowanfield Infant School

Product – Motiva Duo

Requirement – Did you know, a change of scenery is as good as a rest!

Often what we think of as boredom or lethargy is actually just a lack of attention. It is really hard to pay full attention to the same space for a prolonged period of time, our minds like variety and a lack of it can be interpreted as boredom.

But the truth is, there is no such thing as boredom. It’s all in our head.

Knowing this can be really helpful because it means that keeping our students engaged is less about their interest and more about our ability to keep stimulating them. One way we can do that is with a change of scenery.

Taking students outside and switching the learning environment can have the same effect on concentration and attention as a nap because new stimulus forces us to ‘wake up’.

A&S Landscape was approached to help add an outdoor learning area at Rowanfield Infant School in Cheltenham so they too could take advantage of a change of scenery!

Solution – We installed a Motiva Duo at 7000mm x4000mm with bright white steelwork (RAL 9010) and Alu-Tuff™ box profile guttering to match in Dura-Coat™ finish. Clear roofing lets the maximum amount of daylight in whilst still keeping the weather at bay, meaning that this space is available for Rowanfield the whole year-round.

Result – The result is the opportunity to take students outside and plan sessions that could not always take place indoors. Messy play or loud and entertaining sessions now have a home but this space is also just a great place to get outside, no matter what the weather is doing!
