Millions to spend on playgrounds

A playground

Millions of pounds are going to be splashed out on revamping playgrounds in England to make sure you all have somewhere safe to play outside.

Work on new and improved playgrounds will happen over the next three years as part of a massive 10-year plan by the government to improve your lives.

Ministers say they recognise the need for kids aged eight to 13 to have good places to play and let off steam.

They'll also be reviewing what you learn at school and how you're tested.

One girl agreed that there should be more for kids to do: "I don't think there's enough playgrounds around to come to.

"If there was, there wouldn't be all these people making trouble on the streets."
