Newby’s Development Den - Real-Life Learning

Playground Resources

Real-life Learning 

Schools, nurseries and pre-schools – the epicentres of education and learning.

Next stop? – The epicentre of product development!

A child’s imagination never stops, and we love it that way. So much so, we want to enhance the benefits of real-life learning! We'd like to see children getting more hands on in the classroom, thinking outside the box to develop their own imaginative play resources!

Newby Leisure are giving your school the chance to have your very own timber play resource(s) sold globally on newbyleisure.com 

What’s more? Your school will receive 10% of the winning play resource sales!! – FOR ONE YEAR! 


    • Fantastic idea for lesson planning
    • Bringing play-based learning to life
    • Learn the basics of design, development and manufacturing 
    • Great incentive for social engagement
    • Develop a generation of future entrepreneurs!


Taking a Dragon's Den style approach to learning, Newby Leisure have come up with an idea that will offer fantastic educational benefits. Getting children socially involved in a classroom environment isn't always the easiest of tasks. However, when we introduce fun into the classroom, it makes everything so much more exciting. 

We'd like to see children working in pairs or teams to develop a unique timber play resource. The idea can evolve around anything a child desires, so there are lots of play scenarios to consider. Whether it's a product for Messy Play, Construction Play, Sensory or something totally different, Newby Leisure want to see it! 

For some inspiration, check out the range of products on our website here.


Email: ashley@newbyleisure.com for an information pack on the campaign containing a 'how to' guide. Or call 01472 230022 for more information. 


All design ideas need to be submitted to ashley@newbyleisure.com by 7th June 2019. After this date, the team at Newby Leisure will go through all entries and pick out the resources which have potential for sale on newbyleisure.com

From here, we'll judge the entries and contact the winning school(s). The winner(s) will then have their product uploaded to newbyleisure.com for sale!!

We may also visit your school to present you with the winning item too!

This is real-life learning!
