Prototype Phyzzpod gets an official opening

Niz Smith, Martin Salter MP & David Baker opening the PhyzzpodThe Phyzzpod was officially opened today at Whitley Park by local MP Martin Salter.

A small reception was held to showcase the room before it’s handed over to the children at the school to test and evaluate.

Head teacher Anne Tanner commented:

“We are excited at Whitley Park to be given the chance to explore with the children the possibilities for learning this brings. We aim to create stimulating learning opportunities for the children, develop their language and create wonderful learning environments that give them a sense of the world around us. Themes including seaworld, space, gardens, and jungles come immediately to mind but others will emerge as the staff team explore the possibilities.”

“We are privileged to be part of this project and we will do our best to help ‘KidsOut’ provide more of these portable sensory rooms for other children across the UK. Our plan is to extend the use within our local community to the two Children’s Centres in Whitley, for children to visit the room and have fun exploring it. My thanks to Mark and Kevin for the design, ideas and for making this dream a reality.”
