Green Park, green parks

Arrived a bit early for a breakfast meeting and so had a few moments sitting here in London's Green Park which links Parliament with Buckingham Palace and Piccadilly.

So many parks are what makes London special and, in a week where research has confirmed how important play is for learning, it is properly food for thought about school designs: space, play, tranquility - it is so easy to scrape an informal amphitheatre into the earth while the groundwoks are being done, and many schols i work with have made really great use of the outdoor as well as the indoor space . .
