Oh we (Years 1 to 6) do like to be beside the seaside, and on Tuesday it was the perfect day for the beach. Everything was going swimmingly until we realised one of our coaches had broken down delaying the Year 1 to 3 children by a good hour or so.

Fortunately, that didn’t break the children’s spirits who had a great time on the beach, in the Happidrome and in the water fountains. They enjoyed ice creams, slush and chips in true British seaside tradition and got 2p stains on some of their hands from the machines. The Happidrome made sure every child left with something – they kindly offered them key-rings and a pack of cards.

Overall, it all worked out in the end. Here’s a handful of photos of their time on the beach.
