Year 6 Relax on Longsands Beach

11th May 2018

After working their socks off all term (and indeed, all year) preparing for the impending SATs, the Year 6 children spent the day on Tynemouth's Longsands Beach.  A day of messing about on the sand and in the water, with a fantastic surfing lesson thrown in, proved just the ticket for settling any frayed nerves.  The weather was kind, with no rain and a decent offshore breeze, which resulted in perfect conditions for our novice surfers, many of whom were able to manage a standing ride by the end of the session.  Everyone had great fun and showed fantastic perseverance.  We wish them all the very best of luck for their week of tests.
