Using EYFS playground markings to support development

Early Years Foundation Stage development is a key aspect of pre-school, nursery, and reception class assessments. Therefore, having the right resources to help your pupils meet their targets under these criteria is essential.

Playground markings are a fantastic resource for a range of targets and milestones for children, with EYFS learning being no exception.

Benefits of EYFS playground markings

There are a huge range of benefits to installing playground markings at your early years centre or for your reception class, some of which include:

  • Help children develop social skills

Social skills are a key aspect of the early year’s foundation stage, therefore having playground markings as a resource can help children to learn how to play together, sharing and developing key socialising skills as a result.

  • Encourage individual play

Specific playground markings can help pupils to work towards learning to play as individuals, learning to use their imagination whilst still developing their knowledge of key areas of early years learning.

  • Instil knowledge of maths and English

Maths and English early years knowledge can be developed with creative playground markings. Helping children to learn whilst they engage in playtime, markings can be tailored to specific age ranges and abilities, making them an ideal tool for EYFS learning.

  • Integrate exercise into pupil’s everyday routine

Exercise and PE indicators are a key element of the EYFS structure, therefore by providing a range of creative and engaging playground markings for your pupils, they will be able to engage in regular activity. Developing their PE and exercise skills and levels, helping them reach key benchmarks within the guidance.

The above list isn’t exhaustive, as there are a huge range of benefits your pupils will experience, some of which are individual to their own personal development and understanding of the world around them.
