Playground Games – these sites have a great selection of games as well as lots of information for teachers and parents on how you and your children can use playground games as a learning tool at home or the classroom. My favourite was always french skipping! http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/studentssite/playgroundgames.htm
