It is through play that children first learn how to make decisions, solve problems, learn self control, and follow rules!!!
As children direct their own free play and solve the problems that come up, they MUST learn self control over themselves, at times, accept restrictions on their own behavior and follow the rules if they want to be accepted and successful in the game.
As children negotiate both their physical and social environments through play, they can gain a sense of knowledge over their life. playtime at school offers ENORMOUS psychol benefits, helping to protect children from anxiousness and depression.
Children who DO NOT have the opportunity to control their own actions, to make and follow through on their own decisions, to solve their own problems, and to learn how to follow rules in the course of play, grow up feeling that they are not in control of their own lives and fate. They grow up feeling that they are dependent on luck and on the goodwill.
Anxiousness and depression often occur when an individual feels a lack of control over his or her own life.
WHY WE SHOULD HAVE PLAYTIME AT SCHOOL!!!
Yes we all know learning is important but for six hours no break can be a bit of a bore, because you don't get to go outside and laugh with your best buddy's , that can be a bit of a problem. And whats the playground for if nobody is going to play on it.
If you don't go outside to play you won't get enough fresh air. And no you can't just open the windows because that won't be enough fresh air.
You also NEED exercise because if you don't you could get a little chuby and plump.
So as you can see you MUST go outside or this will happen.
Going outside and playing is the best way to make new friends and use your imagination, and imagination and friends are super important,
otherwise you would be lonely all the time during class. And I know without friends you can get pretty sad.
Once we have all had a class break A.K.A play time our brains can think properly, and if we don't have play time you brain goes blank with thoughts.
And we all NEED to think properly incase you are doing a test because you might get a low mark.
So thats why we all NEED to have playtime
