The importance of play-based learning what is play based learning? Practical examples of this theory in schools. • Explore the world – natural and social
• Develop and practise social and language skills that may be more
complex than in everyday activities
• Expand and challenge their physical skills
• Experiment with new ideas including symbolic competence required
for formal learning
• Enhance their self-confidence
• Think and express themselves creatively
• Respond to experiences with or without language • Children may play on their own in solitary play; alongside someone else
but independently in parallel play or with other children in cooperative play

• Play may be unstructured, where the child is self-directed or takes
all the initiative. • positive attitudes of self-motivation and self-direction
• self-confidence

However play-based learning has already been implemented in school environments such as Croydon West Primary School and Manchester Primary school, so there is evidence that play-based learning is both successful and useful in modern day teaching.
If our vision was to be implemented in all schools, the students’ learning would not be assessed through curriculum, but marked merely on their development physically and mentally.
