Bringing sensory learning to a Cambridge primary school

At Playscheme we love a challenge - and this Cambridshire project was certainly that!

Playscheme was delighted to be asked to design a new nature and sensory learning space for Kings Cliffe Endowed Primary School in Cambridgeshire.

This was a large project with lots of equipment on unused field space, and we were taken aback when we started the sensory area install when we discovered a natural spring. Every time we dug a hole, it filled with water - this wasn't going to be one of our most straightforward installs!

After overcoming that initial surprise, the sensory learning area now includes:

  • A large outdoor resource area with two bi-folding doors to the front of the building, windows in the trusses and down each side to bring the outdoors in and a cedar shingle roof to keep the building looking natural
  • A sensory footpath with timber rungs and concrete sleepers, all coloured gold and red        
  • A stream play system that includes a push button water system, stainless steel water weirs and a bridge going over the stream
  • A dipping pond area with plants, lift up dipping stations and seating around the edges
  • A  200m² wild flower meadow, bird stations, planters and apple trees
  • A music zone with a high quality soprano quartet ensemble which included a pair of congas, babel drum, cadenza and soprano pentatonic . The sensory music zone has woodland benches around the outside.
