Year 6 Web of different colours of the activity Things to do Layout plan of existing yards Computer design of playground Opening invitations Building the yard from recycled objects
Quotes Although my shopping centre is a great idea, I dont think it will fit in the space My design for the football pitch when looking at the yard will be too big for anything else to fit in We are pleased with our design in an ideal world but perhaps the safety would be a bit of a problem
Project success Each teacher felt that it was a success Got to see a side of some children not seen before All enjoyed All thought the rethink was a great idea Teachers have used process to develop other areas in the curriculum
Identified the need to make our limited areas in the playground more attractive
