This term the school council have redesigned the school playgrounds.

They have chosen some colourful benches for the Key Stage 1 playground and have also designed some new markings.

The Key Stage 1 playground now has a road for the children to use when riding on the bikes. It also has some useful activities for phonics and numeracy!


The Key Stage 2 playground has a new 100 square and a compass.


An article has appeared in the Horncastle News about this development:

Excerpt from the Horncastle News:

'Children at Bardney Primary School have recently benefitted from a revamped playground, with all the markings being replaced or renewed. Markings now include a road track, complete with zebra crossings, a trim trail, number lines, a phonics grid, an alphabet dragon, hopscotch squares, a compass, floor targets and  renewed netball court markings. The school’s School Council, which is made up of two children from each year group, from Reception to Year 6 had the responsibility of deciding the types of activities they wanted on the playgrounds, following consultation with children in the classes. Headteacher, Mr Garth Hicks said “The idea behind the new markings is to keep the children active at break times and lunchtimes and to make these times more fun! The school council has chosen the designs, which have received lots of positive feedback from the children and parents.”

The playground markings add to the already outstanding outdoor learning environment at the school, which includes two tyre parks, a trim trail, an outdoor classroom, a climbing wall, a play tower and a number of new recycled plastic rainbow coloured seating areas.'

The next school council project will be to look at getting some play equipment for break and lunch times.
