Norland Place Primary School
We have created a climbing wall with beautiful deep hardwood panelling, at Norland Place Primary School, London. The surface is brought to life by the colourful holds and volumes, along with red rubber crumb surfacing running underneath.
Opposite this wall is a lower level climbing wall for the younger pupils, running along an existing brick wall.
Both walls are complete with targets for PE lessons!
The children all love the climbing wall! We are now using it left to right and they have really got the hang of it. It has also been good to try some of the challenges that you suggested and it is interesting to see that the children are now coming up with their own!
Due to the popularity, we have had to have a timetable for playground use, but this seems to work well as they understand that their time will come during the week and stops them spending all of play time waiting for one go!
I think really the main thing that has impressed me is how beneficial the walls are and that they can be used in safe and fun manner in such a small environment.
