Benefits of Playing and Sharing

If you were lucky enough to watch the Year 1 assembly last Friday morning, you would have seen that the assembly was all about ‘toys’ and ‘sharing’. The children talked about their favourite toys and demonstrated how it is more fun to share toys than to play on your own.

There is a great deal of research into the benefits of ensuring your children have time to play with other children and I have outlined some of it below:

• Learning to get on with others and resolve conflicts will help your children as they move on through the school to become children who can work and collaborate well with others in more academic aspects of their education.

• Practising language skills – children learn a large amount of language through interactions with their peers.

• Development of small (fine) and large (gross) motor skills.

• Play provides children with opportunities to be creative and independent from adults.

• Play allows children to ‘burn-off’ some of their energy and functions as a ‘stress reliever’ from academic learning. At BVIS we aim to ensure children have enough time to play and in Early Years and Year 1 children are provided with time in class to develop the very important skills outlined above.
