Christmas arrives early at Laxey School
Hartford Homes has donated a number of playground materials to Laxey School to help boost pupil’s outdoor play resources.
The materials, such as buckets, hosepipes, planks and pallets, were requested as part of the school’s ongoing project to encourage creative and collaborative play.
Teacher Carolyn Hastings said: “Playtimes are now an exciting adventure and, through their use of ‘loose parts’ such as those provided by Hartford Homes, we have seen children of all ages developing their capacity to assess and manage risk, to solve problems and share ideas.”
She added: “In a world where computers and technology often dominate leisure time, it is fantastic to see children playing in a more creative and exploratory way which engages lively minds and fosters an enjoyment of physical activity.”
