Skate parks and other outdoor activities have been stopped for children who are together at school indoors all day. I firmly believe, and there is masses of evidence to say that these activities are important to the health and well being of our children both physically and mentally. Surely if the children are in their bubble, as they are in school indoors, they should be allowed take part in activities outside after school.  Scooting and skating in particular are non contact, outside in open air and still allowed for adults one to one! Indoor parks can operate too under supervision so why can't outdoor ones! Playgrounds are allowed to open! Children climbing and touching the same swings etc, how can this be safer than a skate park where the children only touch their own equipment? Where did common sense go! I know most parents with children in school are keeping them away from other vulnerable family members as it's impossible for schools to maintain social distancing in classrooms of 30+ children and the Government guidelines for schools recognise this, so why can't they do activities which are so important for their well being? It's wrong to keep them cooped up all day inside together then not allow them to exercise together outside. The UK has one of the highest rates of childhood obesity, surely that is just as worrying for our children? mental health issues in children is increasing every year. Sucide too!  Why are these issues not priority? How can we ignore these facts when we don't even have the facts about Covid? Why can we not carry on doing sports in bubbles? Why can't they wear masks and sanitize? Why can't they carry on and social distance? There are so many other options to consider before just stopping all activities especially when schools are remaining open and the children are all together anyway!
