Chuckle Playground Project

Sovereign sponsored a new pilot scheme in the hope it would help boost inclusivity and give children the skills needed to develop friendships in the playground. Schools throughout the UK could benefit from the programme, which involved the introduction of a structured plan of lunchtime sessions that supported children in the development of physical and social skills. The project was developed by Chuckle Productions and aimed to achieve social inclusion for all pupils. The project was funded by UK play equipment specialist, Sovereign Play Equipment. Delivered weekly, the lunchtime sessions were carefully planned to influence a positive impact on inclusion by supporting children who were identified as requiring additional help in developing the skills required to make and sustain positive, supportive friendships, while encouraging all pupils to understand that everyone is different and to treat those differences in a kind, respectful manner. Sara Christie, Director at Chuckle Productions, explains: “Lunchtimes can be difficult for children as they try to master the skills of negotiating the rules of play, keeping up with the latest trend or craze and understanding the intricacies of friendships. Unhappy lunchtime experiences may have an effect on a child’s ability to  concentrate and learn during the afternoon lessons.” Delivered by a multi-disciplinary team, activities promoted turn-taking, sharing and listening within busy social situations, problem solving, creativity, imaginative play and the development of soft skills, such as confidence and self-esteem.” Click the logo below to read an article about the project in Education Today …
