We’re having fun at playtime!

February 3rd, 2017

A few weeks ago, a parent mentioned that her daughter and her friends were bored on the playground as, unless they wished to play football, they felt there was not much else to do. I spoke to the children about what they would like to play with and then Miss Charlton kindly searched through catalogues and ordered new play equipment. This was funded through our School Fund, which we have due to the commission raised through the purchase of school photographs and various charitable donations received throughout the year. It has been lovely to see the children playing with our new skipping ropes, giant Snakes and Ladders game and Four in a Row. What really pleased me was the fact that some of our oldest children asked if they could give up their break time to engage the younger children in play. They wanted to supervise the Snakes and Ladders game and show children how to skip with a long rope. From a simple conversation with a parent has come a new playtime experience for many!
