    I think different areas for the playground will make everyone and myself happy. I really like the the idea of a girls only zone.

  2. Samantha says:

    I like the idea however me and my friends like to run around at playtime. ( Playing It or running races).
    If this was to happen then I feel that we need a rather large section of the playground for running around in. Maybe where the swimming pool used to be.

  3. Oliver says:

    It would be useful and possibly easier if 5&6 (Maybe 4,3,2 and 1) to have outdoor seating zone at lunch.

  4. Leah says:

    I think it’s a brilliant idea to have our playground split up into different zones because sometimes while we’re playing a short game or just talking, we usually get distracted by balls flying at us or we’re getting in the way of other peoples games. I think there should be a zone for shelter, like a small (or whatever size) hut if we’re a bit cold or it’s slightly raining. There should also be a zone were you can read a book and not do very many active things. When it’s the summer I suggest we’re allowed to eat outside. Finally it would be a good idea to have a roof and walls around the equipment so when it’s raining we can still go on it without it being wet because it’s sheltered.

    I think that the idea of different play zones is a good one. I think playtime is about getting exercise and fresh air so there should be a play zone for running around in and a different ball game zone and maybe an area to sit down and talk or eat lunch. I also think there should be a shelter to get out of the rain by the water fountain.

  6. Imogen says:

    It is a good idea as all the children in 5 & 6 playground can go anywhere. I think we should use the old swimming pool area as well.

  7. Tilly says:

    I think we should have our playgrounds split into different areas because then only certain people would be able to go certain areas e.g boys would not be able to invade the girls area! Also it would be great because then we will all be able to have some personal space.

  8. Jessica says:

    I think that zoning the playgrounds is a great idea and we should definitely do it. We could do a quiet reading area with a comic swap.

  9. Josh says:

    I think it’s a great idea because it will give some years more opportunity to play on the equipment when it is their turn and not be taken over by other years. I like the idea of quiet and noisy zones!

  10. Ben says:

    I like the idea of different zones in our playground because it gives you a chance to try other things.

  11. Rosalie says:

    Could we have a open-aired hut to read and play games in when it’s raining, but it isn’t wet play or when it is so hot that we need some shade?

  12. Emily says:

    I think it is a very good idea to split the playground
    in half so we have a girl hut and a boy hut. I also
    thought it would be good to split the playground so
    we have a ball area so not many people get hurt
    and we are more happy.

  13. Madison says:

    I think on one day of the week we should be able to go in the KS1 playground. Also 5 and 6 could go in the brown hut.

  14. keira says:

    I think that this is a good idea so we dont have to have a rota and it would be fair for everyone.

  15. Samantha says:

    I think that this is a brilliant idea. It would be great if it could happen on the 5/6 playground!

  16. sam says:

    I think it is not a good idea because it will ruin all the space and there will be nowhere for us to run around.

  17. Freddie says:

    I don’t like this idea because everyone should feel free to go wherever they feel comfortable and play.

  18. Samantha says:

    I think this is an amazing idea so please can we do this!!!!!!!
    We could have a reading zone, running around zone, a making friends zone ( if your lonely then you can go there and meet some one else who is there), a drawing done, sports zone and maybe a performing zone (where you can sing and dance.)

    I like this idea especially as everyone is lonely sometimes and if there were many zones that you could go in and keep occupied then nobody would get upset and alone. Being alone doesn’t feel nice so that is why if the playground was split into zones then everyone would always have something to do and that is why this is an amazing idea!

    Please can we do this!!!!!!

  19. Liam says:

    I don’t want play ground zones because everyone should be able to go were they want.

  20. Imogen says:

    It is the best idea ever as me and my friend can do what we want to do on days we are bored.

  21. Samantha says:

    I agree with Imogen as this is a very good idea.

  22. Emily says:

    I think it is a great idea to split the playgrounds because our teacher said we are too close to each other when we are doing handstands and cartwheels.
