'On a pavement outside a busy London street, a nun teaches her pupils to skip. Theirs is a school without a playground, a school where, until a few days ago, desks were goalposts, chair-backs the cricket stumps. But now the pupils of Tyburn in London have moved out-of-doors to a five-yard square of pavement. Sister May Philippa, the head mistres, said: 'I was delighted when the shop keepers gave their permision. Perhaps one day we will have a real playground.'
