Reviews

'Play-based learning has long been accepted as a central part of learning in the Early Years but it is refreshing to have a book advocating its use throughout the primary years and beyond. This book clearly addresses the main issues about play that will concern many teachers: What does play look like for older pupils? How do I plan play-based learning? What is my role when children are playing? What sort of learning will take place? How will I assess it? The many case studies demonstrate how play-based learning can take place successfully in a variety of settings and across the curriculum. I think that teachers using this book will find their children more engaged, more independent and learning more successfully' -Ashley Compton Bishop Grosseteste University College Lincoln
