Play is acknowledged as an essential part of the primary curriculum, particularly at the early stages where it could be described as a child’s ‘work’. It provides a focus for children to explore, and to learn about sharing materials and ideas. Encouraging
children to be curious helps them to gain an understanding of their world, and through play this is non-threatening. The ways in which children learn through play are discussed more fully at the P1 induction days.
Play is encouraged throughout the school, in the playground there are loose materials in the form of tyres, drain pipes and driftwood which the children use to den build and to role play.
