Welcome back everyone to another exciting term. There is so much to look forward to this term as we move into the festive season and it really is my favourite time of the year.
The playground at lunchtime today was the place to be though, as our brand new Playpod was opened and unveiled to the children. Crammed full of the most interesting and inspiring pieces of scrap, quality materials and items that you would think may not appear to be particularly interesting to primary children. The outcome, however, was probably one of the most rewarding sights and experiences I have had as a teacher. Every inch of the playground was covered with children playing and the quality of their play was just superb. It reminded me of when I was a child and I used to make up games and adventures using items to hand and that is exactly what the PlayPod aims to achieve.
We managed to record this first experience in photographs as you can see below. Look out soon for our new playground equipment, which is currently being installed. Exciting times at Westwood!
