The emergency exit to outdoor learning...
Thanks to Debi who left a comment on the Creative STAR Facebook page, I've been told about the House of Objects in North Tyneside. http://www.northtyneside.gov.uk/browse.shtml?p_subjectCategory=812 - Check out the video
Amazing! I think I will mention this to my boys' elementary school :-). I do love the idea that it is a random bunch of items that the children can sift through.
I've become so excited by these Play Pods since you first introduced me and Sherry to them earlier this year Juliet and after reading the independent evaluation Marc Armitage wrote on the pods I have been completely hooked on them. I'm also really excited to be getting involved with the Australian pods over at Play for life and I have you to thank for it for first sparking my interest ... so Thank you Juliet!Donna :) :)
Last week I took a group of students and teachers to see a similar project near where I live - and the group was amazed at the children's creativity and imagination.
Don't forget Snug, the kit made by the brother-and-sister play space designers Hattie and Tim Coppard, aka Snug and Outdoor. I've seen this in action in an unsupervised context (Gillett Square in Hackney, East London) and it was terrific to see the children getting to grips with it.
Ooh thanks for that link, Tim - I'd forgotten about their system.
