After visiting Roman Road for a second time, I gathered as much information as possible about Old Ford Primary a school located at the top of Roman Road. After my first visit I was fascinated by the way the artwork outside the school had people captured. Many visitors would stop & look at the detailed child like pieces which were placed on the brick wall outside the school gates.
Once I reached back home I looked over the research I had gathered and continued to research the school and it’s history. Firstly, looking into when Old Ford Primary was first opened being, 1988.
I also found out | it is a multi cultural school | a school of excellence | strong interests in the arts and performing arts | how the children are involved in helping to designing their school | their creative stepping stone playground | stepping stone teaching scheme | school productions | architecture collaborations and the design ideas behind the schools logo.
I was interested in the playground and how each year was allocated a part of the playground designed for their age group. The playground was designed by a group of children at the school and one of the teachers along with a well known architecture company called Erect Architecture.
The school had named this project | F O U N D S O U N D.
Each part of the playground has a location name
