THE youngsters at Throston Primary School, in Flint Walk, are back at school – but what did they do to keep busy during the summer?

Lewis Stoddart, 10, said: “The highlight of my holiday was when I went on a cruise ship.

“We went to Gibraltar, Italy, Spain and Portugal, it was brilliant.

“Other than that I just relaxed really, I was quite ready to come back to school.”

Victoria Lynn, 11, also enjoyed a holiday abroad.

She said: “I went to Tenerife for 10 days. I went with my cousins. It was brilliant and the weather was lovely.

“We went on a few days out as well, I went to Whitby and York.”

Henry Bushnell, 10, said: “The best part of the holidays for me was when I went to Scarborough in a caravan.

“We went to a couple of museums as well. I really enjoy the summer holidays, I would have happily had a few more weeks off.”

Josh Simpson, 10, said: “I went to Durham for a day in the holidays and we went to the Cathedral, I really like Durham.

“The best part of the holidays for me is being able to wake up on a morning and just relax and decide what you want to do.

“I went to the beach a few days, that was good.”

Jessica Mahoney, 10, said: “The highlight of the six weeks for me was when I went to Torremolinos.
