Barnes Farm Infant School
The Fawns Pick up Sticks (1) has provided the much need physical challenge within the Early Years Play Area. The school philosophy is to create a generation of children who can think and make informed decisions by them themselves rather than wrapping them in cotton wool.
The appeal and satisfaction of the Fawns Pick Up Sticks (1) is that it encourages the children to make decisions and take managed risk, at an age appropriate level, with unlimited play value due to its open ended, circular design. The school have utilised their Sports Premium Money to fund this project, and by utilising a play space adjoining the Key Stage 1 playground, both age groups are making full use of the new play equipment throughout the school day.
