Children in the senior room were elected to the school council and took on the role of playground leaders. These children have been excellent at encouraging children to participate more in small games and other activities.
Our playground areas are zoned and children can choose from three areas: (1) astroturf pitch; (2) small playground; and (3) basketball court/large play space. Zone (1) the astroturf pitch not only promotes football but it offers a safe surface for non-football activity eg playing horses; co-operative walking on skis; riding on wheeled toys. Zone (2) the small playground offers interesting spaces for hiding and chasing games. Zone (3) the basketball court offers lots of space for running/ playing team games; in this area children can access a selection of outdoor play equipment eg hoops, bats, ropes etc.
