“It’s better to invest in high quality, flexible equipment than in costly fixed structures that limit the children’s play…with Outlast we are seeing children become more powerful learners, better at concentrating, better at solving problems.”
- Dr Julian Grenier, Head teacher, Sheringham Nursery School and Children’s Centre and National Teaching School
Sheringham Nursery School has been using Outlast blocks for the past few months. They have seen children become more engaged in their play. They also find that girls get involved with the block play, just as much as the boys. Children are now interacting with each other in new ways and learning to solve problems.
The only problem for the staff is, they need more blocks!
These exciting discoveries and more are recorded here in this case study interview with Head teacher Julian Grenier and Class teacher Lindsey Foster.
