Play by Flo Turner, Class Cook

DSC02020"Everyone gets excited for play, that is why we have lots of facilities including: scrap, junior playground, infant playground, top playground, field, adventure playground, infant adventure playground, Mud Kitchen, the Dengineering zone and the Play Beach.

A new piece of scrap has made its way to the playground, this piece if scrap is a mesh tube, lots of children wear it as a sort of armour. At school we have a rule called Scrap on Scrap, which means that children cannot hit each other with scrap but hit scrap.

At lunch times we also have an ICT suite and a library for children to go on the computers or read books. There are two sites you can go on: Active Learn and Scratch. Scratch is a programming site where children can curate their own games. Active Learn is a grammar learning site.

The Adventure Playground is like a normal play park. It has a slide, bars, climbing poles, tyre swings, a spider web frame and an assault course. The Infant Adventure Playground is the same but smaller. You can only come in here at break times.

On the field we have a Dengineering Zone where we have a variety of dens, and if you want you can build your own. In the summer the Play Team put out a slack line and hammocks. Lots of children like to play football on the school field since the school have bought goals for them. This is an inspiration for the children to take up new sports. Also on the field there is a Play Beach where children can pretend they are at the beach in school!

On rainy days we have a thing called 'wet play' where all the children stay inside their classrooms and play games that the school provide especially for them.

The children on Blue Coat praise Mrs Murray for her dedication to make play times a fun learning experience for all."
