Les jeux et les expériences des élèves dans les cours de récréation, une comparaison France-Suisse

Abstract : Could the playground, a place of many experiences, also be a learning area? To answer this question, this thesis examines the activities, experiences and considerations of all the actors of two schools in different countries. One is located in the canton of Lucerne in Switzerland, and the other in the Centre region of France. In these two schools, both the point of view of the pupil and of the teacher has been taken into consideration in order to show the eventual learning for the children during these moments. Observing playground activities in two schools located in different countries enables a comparison between the functioning of their educational systems and of their playgrounds in order to understand the influence of pupils' learning on their everyday life at school. This study highlights similarities but also many differences in the functioning, in the activities and in the learning concepts of the pupils in the playground. Could the playground be a common place for France and Switzerland where games, activities and experiences can be shared by the pupils? Or, on the contrary, does the country of origin influence the children's activities in the playground? Nevertheless, in reference to this study and despite an ignorance more or less desired of the teachers, the playground seems to be a real learning area not only limited to handing down knowledge but also beneficial in the development of attitudes and skills for the children.
