I've been a little slow off the mark with this one, but the 5th August was this year's Playday, an annual event which celebrates children's right to play. This year's theme was 'Make Time', with a focus on ensuring that children are given enough opportunity to indulge in this important part of their development. On a serious note, the organisers behind the event commissioned several opinion polls and pieces of research exploring different perspectives on play, from parents, schools, and the children themselves; a detailed literature review has also been produced. Links to each of these reports can be found from this link.
