The school playground plays a crucial role in developing all aspects of children's behaviour and interpersonal learning. Yet there is a growing awareness that children today do not play in the same sociable ways as previous generations. This resource provides a practical toolkit of ideas to promote lively and enjoyable games. It draws on traditional games and also introduces a wealth of new ones including: * Chasing and catching games * Skipping games and rhymes * Singing and dancing games * Parachute games * Quiet games * Circle games * Cooperative games * Games from around the world.
