Sensory and Active Floor Graphics are taking the world by storm, as a way of providing Physical Literacy to schools. With a fun spin on education, there’s no wonder why! This is where ActivPath™ comes in; asking children to follow a path, balance, jump and follow numbers/letters is a perfect way to keep their minds active, improve motor skills and aid their learning development.
Sensory or Active Paths are an amazing tool for primary schools to help children’s development in this area. Outside of the PE class these floor graphics can be utilised as part of other lessons ensuring maximum opportunity is provided to develop the physical literacy of their pupils throughout the school day.

ActivPath™ floor graphics are designed to integrate learning with play. Kids can learn the alphabet, numbers and even planets in the solar system whilst being active.
We have installed ActivPath in a few schools and have been delighted on such a positive response from the schools. Within the first couple of weeks they have seen the stimulation these graphics are providing the pupils. Says Jackie Hamilton, Business Development Manager
ActivPath™ has been designed to stimulate and encourage activity indoors, similar to the painted line markings in playgrounds, but placed in corridors, hallways, or open indoor areas to allow children to participate as part of classroom learning or whilst moving around the school.
To launch the range Visual Group have developed a white paper to help schools understand how these sensory and active floor graphics can support a primary schools Physical Literacy program. The white paper is free to download at www.visual-group.co.uk
ActivPath™ can easily be used in schools without requiring skilled installers to fit them reducing the cost to schools.
The range has been developed to encourage movement and offer a supporting resource to teachers who are introducing a programme of Play Strategies into their curriculum and we will look to expand the range in the new year.
