Brightly coloured number grids are often applied to school playgrounds using the thermoplastic material, these are great for helping kids to learn maths and enjoy fun games.
With these educational markings children can start to learn fundamental maths skills at school through enjoying different activities while they play outside.
Over recent years, more and more schools have been making improvements to their outdoor playgrounds in order to create engaging learning environments such as number grids. Thermoplastic markings are often used as part of this process and numbered grid designs are very popular. These educational graphics can vary in size, colour and specification so let us know what type of number grid you are looking for. One of our experts will gladly advise you on the costs for markings if you complete our contact form today.
It’s great to introduce nearby children to maths from an early age in nursery and EYFS groups, even before they start school. By playing different games and activities using these outdoor surface graphics, the kids are able to understand things more easily. For younger children, a simple numbered grid with 1-9, 1-12 or 1-15 would be perfect to teach the basics. In primary schools, larger graphics can be made with up to 1-100 number grid sizes for older children who are learning more about maths. OFSTED usually rate these features highly because they contribute to active learning in an outdoor space.
Our local experts closest to you, can install these designs either with an outline or with solid colour squares. The outline option is created by laying out coloured thermoplastic lines to make up the squares, then putting the numbers in each box. The plastic will then be heat applied meaning it melts onto the tarmac playground and sticks in the desired position. For a solid coloured design, the lines are laid out, then coloured shapes are placed in between the lines, and the numbers will be put on top of these squares. The same heating process will then be carried out to apply the markings and ensure they are secure and durable.

Learning times tables is a fundamental part of maths in school. This is an activity which can be incorporated into outdoor games with a thermoplastic multiplication table.

Just like the standard numbers grid, the multiplication tables come with a range of dimensions and colour choices to suit you.
