How are you using the space to deliver outdoor learning and educational play?
The Poddely Set gives us the option to take play and learning wherever we feel like it. We’ve taught the children how to set-up the equipment, so that they can create anything they want during break times. During lessons we make seats for story times or easels for mark making. When the bell rings for break, the children’s imaginations are unleashed and we see dens, castles and assault courses.
What are the biggest benefits you have seen for the children?
Using the Poddely set to deliver free flow play has inspired the children to be more creative. The set challenges them, requiring problem solving skills, and this has been transferred to a range of subjects. We’ve seen improvements in their social and behavioural skills as well as in their approaches to new challenges and problems. Spending more time outside has boosted their productivity and creativity, adding some variety to the way they play has been very beneficial.
