Reading list for teachers – Supporting children’s play in schools

Author: Play Wales
Date: January 2024

It’s important for children to have opportunities to be playful in school outside playtimes. Playful activities should be central to learning – for older children as well as for those in early years.

We have put together a list of recommended resources for thinking about play in school. The reading list is a starting point for reflection and Continuing Professional Development for those with an interest in improving children’s opportunities for playing at school.
