This is a very practical handbook similar to the “Playground games” booklet that was reviewed on anseo.net last month. It is an easy to read handbook that is aimed a teachers, SNAs, parent helpers and any supervisors who is working on the lunch/break slot in Irish classrooms.
It is divided up into helpful and concise sections like “How to get on with children at yard” “Encouragin good behaviour” “Sanctions” and “Children beyond”
It has some really creative ideas around wet playtimes, playground friendships and how to promote them, dealinng with bullies and most importantly how to tie in the School rules into the yard rules. If you are using the Jenny Mosley system of Golden Rules, this will slot in even more perfectly for you!
This handbook is sold as a multipack of 3 and costs about €11.40 or £9.99 from the Positive Press website.
