As the saying goes, "Too much work without play makes Jack a dull boy." In the same sense children need to get time to play so that they don’t become dull.
After school children who don’t go back for afternoon classes, need to rest after eating. This gives their minds a chance to cool down. The daily activities are too much for a small child’s mind. And without resting children will be tired all the time.
After resting it is good for a child to go out and play with his or her friends. When they play together they learn a lot of good new games which they can also share with other friends at school.
Playing is good because children find ways of talking with their friends about things that big people don’t understand.
A good child at school should play when it’s break time. When the teacher is in class, it is not good to play because you cannot learn. When you play in class you miss what the teacher is teaching and this may make you fail exams.
Do not forget that you have to use your time out of class to do your home work too..
