Drainpipe Ball Run

05/11/2013 20:57


This lovely piece of play equipment in our playground is easy to set up. It is simply a few bits of drainpipe set up as a ball run. It is really popular with our pupils and the children love watching the ball go from the top to the bottom before falling off at the open end. For our children who are learning to communicate it is  brilliant as you can put the balls in a container, (which is tricky to open) with a picture of a ball on top. Some pupils will grab the picture and travel to an adult to get them to open the container. It can also be used to teach turn-taking or just to have fun!!
