6 Summary of Session 2
In this session you observed a school playground and used some design criteria to evaluate what you observed. You heard from children and from playtime supervisors about what makes for good playtimes. You also looked at some basic design principles for school playgrounds.
You should now be able to:
- recognise some basic design principles for school playgrounds
- understand children’s views of the school playground
- develop skills to evaluate play spaces.
In the next session, you will observe children in their classrooms.
You can now go to Session 3.
