Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to highlight play and learning in the lower school ages in organized and non-organized break actives. The premise is that the break is a part of the schoolday and that the school has responsibility to live up to the goals and guidelines of the curriculum even in recess. Leisuretime-pedagogy and the professional competence the pedagogs possess about games and the social relations of children are also in focus in this study. The study is a qualitative study where the empirical material consists of observations in a schoolyard environment during one week and interviews with children. The material has then been interpreted and analyzed using Lev S. Vygotsky's sociocultural perspective. The conclusions are, that the break is an opportunity for children to socialize with peers and in a playful way learn social skills of friendship, how to behave as a boy or a girl, and what works for one's age. The study also shows that children crave active adults in the schoolyard during recess and leisure-pedagogs have the skills required to support children's development by supporting the children's building of relationships and offer educational activities.
