Selecting playground games for your KS2 group can be difficult due to different abilities and interests. However, to help you with selecting suitable games for all ages, we have rounded up some of our top choices for playground games.
Some examples of popular playground games for KS2 include:
Group games are ideal for the KS2 age group, helping pupils to develop key social skills and learn compassion, understanding and how to play with other pupils. Although individual play is important, playing in groups can help children to develop in other ways. Great examples of group games can also be educational such as maths and number grids, daily mile tracks and road themed safety games.
Part of breaktime play is creating games as individuals, learning independent play through games which utilise the imagination or creative thinking. Using equipment such as playground markings can help pupils to develop their ability to play alone for short periods of time.
Traditional playground games
Traditional playground games continue to be the favourite games of many KS1 and KS2 pupils, providing the option to play individually or as a group, these games come in a range of options. From hopscotch through to snakes and ladders, traditional playground games provide endless entertainment for pupils of all ages.
Playground markings are extremely popular for the KS2 age group, providing ongoing entertainment with durable, vibrant markings. One of the major benefits to installing playground markings is that they last for years to come and so, year groups within KS2 can continue to use them.
