I had seen this area of the school filled with water and formed a plash when it rained and the children would splatter on it at breaktime. Now that it’s winter the water turned into ice and hard enough to let the children bring their ice skates and perform on ice. Some like to play hockey while others just want to glide with their shoes. This is better than playing with water, I guess, though I know that some children love to play on a plash. It will take some time before the ice melts perhaps enough to make the children long for a dry ground.
