Huge Excitement as PlayPod comes to Ramsbury

posted in: Uncategorized | 0


Our children were thrilled to return to school this term to find two large brand new sheds filled with exciting play materials. Wiltshire’s ‘Scrapstore PlayPod’ provide a huge range of scrap materials such as cardboard tubes, tyres, lengths of material, netting, ropes, crates and bins which extends the choices and possibilities of play for all children on a regular basis.  The unprescriptive nature of these loose parts in combination with children’s inventiveness and creativity results in them using the items in endless different ways, enabling all ages, genders and abilities to find ways to play and socialise together.  The Scrapstore PlayPod’s are then topped up with scrap materials on a regular basis.

Here’s what some of our Class 6 children think…
