  1. Hello !

    We’re the children from France. Yesterday we practise the playground “Bulldog”, a game from UK. It was very easy to understand. In France, we have the same game but the name is different : we call it “sparrowhawk”.
    We’re going to practise the other playground.

    I really enjoyed 2 in the wall because it improves your ball skills and dodging skills as if you get hit by the ball you are out.The game we played was from Norway, it was really fun to play.We are from Ropery Walk School and we are going to try out all the other games.

  6. hello

    I played King Of The Hill I really enjoyed playing this game because I enjoyed playing games with my friends I also like this game because I think its funny watching my friends rolling down the Hill laughing.
    I also played two in a wall I did enjoy this game but it got boring at the end but it was good though.

  30. I am a child from kibblesworth primary school and i think red rover and bomb are 2 very good games both dangerous.Red rover is dangerous because you might get hurt running into each other.Bomb is a good idea but losing to eyes is dangerous getting a ball thrown at you.

    Best regards from us here at kibblesworth.

  32. hi,

    i am from kibblesworth primary in the uk.i thought the game bomb was good here in the uk we also play that game which has the same name but in our version you sing “its a bomb its a bomb its a very big bomb” then after that we start to count down from 10 then the person who has the ball on zero has to loose a leg then a arm then a eye then after that you are out because we think that loosing two of each is dangerous . i hoped that you enjoy the games that we have chosen for you because we enjoyed yours.
    thank you.goodbye




  34. Hi,

    Im from kibblesworth is the uk.I tryed out bomb i thought it was great. The instructions were easy to understand but we thought loosing two eyes was a bit dangerous. We play the same game here in the UK but we don’t loose 2 of each things because of we think it will be to dangerous.

  40. Bonjour tout le monde.
    Hello !
    We played Freeze tag and the bomb. We enjoyed playing those 2 games ; in France Freeze tag is call “the frozen wolf” and the bomb is call “tomato”.
    For the bomb, we have a problem : some children kept the ball and give it only when they arrived at 2/3. How can we resolve this problem ?

    Today we go tried ” red rover “.

  41. Hello from Kibblesworth Nursery Class. We’ve just played ‘Beret’, one of the games submitted by France. We thought it was great, Ellie especially liked chasing the children to stop them getting the point. We stuck numbered labels on our sleeves to help us remember which number we were. Thank you so much for sending the instructions for how to play the game – they were very easy to use and understand, and the photographs were brilliant. We look forward to playing it again.
