After weeks of very hard work, our Year 6 pupils spent an amazing day at Tynemouth Longsands beach for a bit of welcome chilling out, in preparation for next week's tests. All week, we'd been suffering some particularly awful weather, but Friday dawned clear and sunny. We expected a chill in the air, but it was actually pleasantly warm at times - at least once we'd dried off! The highlight of the day was a surfing lesson, which (once those very tight wetsuits had been squeezed into) was the best fun ever, according to quite a few excited screams. Everyone got to experience the thrill of riding a wave, and a few of us even managed to master the board standing up. What a great way to prepare our minds.
