Learning Through Play


Play is the highest form of research”~Albert Einstein

Learning through play is an important aspect of the early years in Primary School. Numeracy, literacy, drama, art and ICT are consolidated and developed through play. Children can express their thoughts, ideas and creativity in a safe and interactive environment, where they can make decisions, work with others and develop a range of motor and social skills. Progression in play is also important and therefore tasks and outcomes are differentiated.

“Development can only take place when children are actively involved, when they are occupied with a high, non-stop degree of concentration, when they are interested, when they give themselves completely, when they use all their mental abilities to invent and make new things and when this gives them a high degree of satisfaction”.
