Echoey. In the winter it was quite cold.

Describe the new Bartholomew Barn

 

Sonny and George (aged 9 and 11)

Amazing.

I prefer it. Yea definitely. It’s not as echoey, it’s warmer and it has more space.

Will and Evie (both aged 9)

It’s a lot better. It’s lighter because the sunlight’s coming in, unlike the Cobb.

Sonny and George (aged 9 and 11)

Well, it’s very big and spacious and you can play a lot of different types of sport in here (Bartholomew Barn).

Tabitha, Abby and Florence (all aged 11)

Light. Warm. Modern. Smells nice.

Sonny and George (aged 9 and 11)

And, the seating’s really good as well because instead of sitting on the floor in the Cobb you can sit on some padded chairs.

Will and Evie (both aged 9)

And, it’s good because it has showers and everything, like toilets.

Tabitha, Abby and Florence (all aged 11)

It’s shiny in a way. Shiny? Yea.
