Activity Panels

Benefits of activity panels

Activity panels are not only about physical play but about stimulating educational interaction and development among children, making them important components of modern educational playgrounds.

They support a range of learning outcomes, from language acquisition and mathematical thinking to scientific curiosity and artistic expression.

Headteachers appreciate activity panels within school playground environments as they help to improve children’s cognitive skills. Many panels are designed with games and puzzles that require thinking, planning, and problem-solving.

For example, maze panels not only keep children engaged but also enhance their logical thinking as they navigate paths.

Activity panels also help to improve children’s sensory development, where panels are designed to stimulate the senses and support sensory processing skills, which are vital for all children.

For example, panels that require children to identify objects by touch alone can significantly improve tactile recognition abilities.

Importantly, the benefits of including activity panels in school playgrounds extend beyond the educational benefits just mentioned.

Panels encourage children to develop socially by providing opportunities for cooperative play and communication. They also cater to a diverse range of developmental stages and abilities, ensuring inclusive play opportunities for all children.

Through the introduction of activity panels in playgrounds, AMV Playgrounds is dedicated to fostering an inclusive environment where children of all physical abilities can grow intellectually, physically, and emotionally.

How activity panels support inclusive play

Activity panels are designed with inclusivity in mind, ensuring that children of all abilities can engage, learn, and grow together.

The activity panels we supply here at AMV Playgrounds are designed to be universally accessible, ensuring that these panels can be used by children with different physical abilities.

For example, panels are often designed and installed at various heights to accommodate children who may be seated in wheelchairs or those who have difficulty reaching higher places.

Also, textures and braille are incorporated for visually impaired students, allowing them to feel and read information through touch.

Furthermore, the materials used are carefully chosen to avoid sharp edges and to provide grip and stability for children who might require extra support.
