I wanted a photo of blurred movement without losing any part of the moving objects, ie the children. I played around for a while with shutter speed, starting off too slow then eventually increasing it and settling on 1/8th of a second.

I had no tripod with me so settled the camera on a piece of play equipment to prevent camera shake.
