Eastbourne Primary School believes strongly in creating a happy and safe environment that promotes play. Play provides students with opportunities for child-led learning during the school day, and students develop responsibility, social skills, creativity and problem-solving skills in this context.
To promote play at recess and lunch times, the school has invested in 2 unique 'play pods'. Inside our pods children find large, interesting items to build and play with. Our year Prep-2 Play Pod contains a variety of items designed to promote cooperative play. Our year 3-6 Bush Play Pod contains a variety of natural and man-made materials for students to create with.
Both play pods are overseen by teachers to facilitate learning in this context. These resources are very popular with our students across the school.
