Our school playground was always noisy. We played football, chased each other and played many games. Sometimes we just stood and told jokes or chanted and sang songs. There was just so much noise. I think it was like an explosion of energy. When the playtime bell sounded we poured into the playground looking for friends and fun. There were some quiet areas in corners and behind buildings. Some boys and girls stood there and watched everybody else. Perhaps they were shy or maybe they were just happy to think and chill out. Who knows? There was so much noise.
