Skull's out for summer...

(Photograph) - Classrooms are empty now. But life goes on. Here we present just a tiny fraction of the subjects teachers can expect to read about come the autumn, when children all over the country return to school and sit down to write that annual favourite, 'What I did on my holidays'.

Make no bones about it, education doesn't stop when everybody goes home for the summer. In our main picture, for example, sisters Amy and Emma Dickenson, aged eight and 10, are learning about the animals that inhabited Creswell Crags, Nottinghamshire, during the last Ice Age, with the help of a 30,000-year-old rhinoceros skull. Elsewhere around the country (top picture) pupils from St Kew school, Cornwall, visited a local farm as part of a National Union of Farmers' campaign highlighting accident risks; (right) the Alien Coneheads came to Harrogate for the launch of a street theatre festival; and (below) Sheffield was the venue for a children's festival by the canal.
