Children at a Suffolk school got wet and wild ahead of the summer holidays.

The pupils of Benhall Primary School, near Saxmundham, cooled off in the heat with their traditional end-of-term water fight.

Children from all three classes put down pen and paper and picked up water pistols, sponges and water balloons, and anything else that could be used to soak their fellow pupils and teachers.

A very wet headteacher, Chris Gallagher explained that the giant water fight had become a school tradition.

He said: “The children look forward to it from the start of term and know that once the school play is over the next event is the water fight.
