Despite the snowy conditions last week first4playgrounds completed another installation of thermoplastic playground markings in Scotland. At St Brides Primary School, Cambuslang, Glasgow our installation team had to shovel the snow from the tarmac then dry the area thoroughly before setting out and installing the thermoplastic playground markings. The markings included a rectangular maze, a chess board and a hopscotch.
first4playgrounds have just designed a new activity trail for the school playground.
The children have to run, skip and jump though different parts of the colourful playground trail. Activity and fitness trails are a great way for children to increase their physical activity at playtime and develop important fine motor skills from the different tasks of running , hopping, skipping and jumping. The playground marking trails can also be used as part of the physical education curriculum and become a colourful outdoor learning space. The new design allows space to add markings in the centre of the trail so the children can get the maximum enjoyment out of their playground.
