The aim of this case study was to investigate how children in one school in Ghana interacted with their peers and used playground space within their play. The data was collected through video recorded observations in a range of contexts. Two videos were analysed for each research question against associated literature. This study identified that although play is a universal characteristic, it varies due to influences such as cultural norms and so it should be observed from an unrestricted viewpoint. Ghana is a community culture in which touch is part of normative social values; this was evident throughout. Children were tactile in using space effectively and played collaboratively in close proximity to each other.
