Global Play Day

It was great to welcome parents to school to join in some Global Play Day fun. The children had a fantastic time in EYFS playing with their friends and family members. KS1 children enjoyed playing with a range of different toys and games from dressing up to construction and craft. 


Global School Play Day is a day of awareness promoting the importance of regular, unstructured play for the best development of children. In recent years children are finding less time to play which is having a negative impact on their early development. Global play day was organised by a group of teachers who were worried that adults and technology are encroaching on playtime for children, increasing mental health issues and anxiety. Play is a powerful learning tool and has a positive effect on children's mental health and well being. As such we will be supporting the event with lots of play based learning in school.
