The MessyTable is a versatile outdoor or indoor activity teaching and learning table with multiple uses. It can also be used as a mud kitchen or as a tabletop chalk board. It can be used for lego storage & for building.
This piece of furniture can be purchased using the Minor Works Grant or can be applied for under the Furniture and Equipment Scheme.
Of particular interest to Special Schools, we have seen some schools use the tables to incorporate the TEACCH® Autism Program method of teaching, allowing pupils using TEACCH® to move from activities in each bowl one at a time.
A number of pupils can play together or side by side at this activity table to encourage parallel play and peer learning.
ASD classrooms attached to mainstream schools find it encourages integration as all pupils enjoy the novelty of the activities that can be planned around the table.
Useful in special schools where the playground needs to be meeting the needs of a wide variety of ages, it can be used for simple sorting lessons for the younger junior school pupils and ideal for messy science lessons with senior pupils.
Tables cater for pods of 2 or 4 children or can be placed together for larger numbers.
An all-round affordable addition to any playground.
