To redesign an area of the school into an outdoor learning space/ sensory playground that benefits the Support Unit students and provides opportunities for inclusion of all students at the school. One requirement the students must account for in their design is an in-ground trampoline.
What are sensory needs?
What can we use outdoor learning spaces for?
What is the best use of the space that we have?
How can we make a learning space that caters to all needs?
Research sensory playgrounds using various websites on the internet – attend an excursion to ‘Wildplay Gardens’ – look/discuss the variety of infrastructure/equipment used and why. Question students what is suitable for our school and for the needs of our students.
Collate ideas with others and create a list of equipment wanted for the playground.
Survey mainstream students for their ideas on how to utilise the space and what benefits they would like to get out of the area.
Measure the area using a trundle wheel for realism of space. Exclude any equipment on the list that is too big for the area. Using grid paper outline the border of the area to scale and include features already installed.
Students plan and design their playground.
Lessons on being a good digital citizen. Create list of expectations for when they are using Minecraft Education.
Show students the tutorial on Minecraft Education so those not so experienced in playing the game can learn the basics of navigating their avatar.
Students watch Youtube ‘How to build a playground tutorial’ and ‘Minecraft Tutorial – How to make a playground’ for ideas and techniques.
Students start using Minecraft Education to create their sensory playground. Students could also signposts to annotate their area or use voiceover layer to answer driving questions and justify their choice of equipment.
Students use camera and portfolio tools to capture design process and export/share with teacher.
