Life was a beach at one Sheffield school when summer came right in to the classroom for a very special day of activities.

Fun donkey rides, a bouncy castle and ice creams galore replaced lessons as youngsters enjoyed the sunshine at the end of term at Malin Bridge Primary School.

And pupils were able to play on their very own beach, making sandcastles and digging deep, thanks to a donation of sand from B&Q.

Robbie McGrath, deputy headteacher at the school on Dykes Lane, said: “Seaside Day was the culmination of seaside topics in both foundation stage and key stage one at the school.

“The children had a wonderful day and took advantage of everything on offer, which linked to the learning they have been doing this half term.”
