Importance of Play

Article 31 of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child states that every child has the right to rest and play. The Classroom and School learning environment can help to facilitate play. Soremi’s (2016) research has shown that play can help children with their physical, cognitive and social development.

What’s in my Bag???

As a teacher going to work with refugees and native Nauruan children on remote and meagerly resourced Naurau what am I packing in my bag?

My focus here is on the learning space in the classroom and the school.

See the adjoining pages for detailed information about what I plan to take to Nauru:

  • Playdough
  • Art supplies
  • Sporting equipment
