In June we held a workshop and asked our King's Hall children about their ideas for an adventure playground. Click on the video to see what they said.

Having involved the children in the design phase we calculate we will need to raise at least £50k. The good news is that, thanks to the incredible generosity of one family, we are 25% of the way to the required amount and work on the first phase took place in half term.

The space and beauty of the King’s Hall site lends itself well to this type of adventure playground. The vision is to carpet the area in many more structures to take the children a million miles away from the classroom and to bring even more levity and laughter to their break time. We judge the success of the project by the size of the children’s smiles.

Casting wide for evidence of the positive impacts of different sorts of vigorous play, it turns out there is a tome of research to prove the point. The benefits go beyond increased motivation and concentration in the classroom, fabulous news though that is for parents and teachers alike. Climbing, sliding, swinging, general adventuring about the place are proven to boost emotional intelligence, general health, intelligence and creativity. Who knew play could do you so much good?
