As part of our trip to the Centre for Life in Newcastle, we went ice-skating. For many of us, this was the first time that we had ever tried this sport so we were rather nervous. At the start of our session, we had a short lesson and demonstration from the staff on the ice rink. Then, we had plenty of time to practice and enjoy ourselves. There was a lot of falling over involved at first but we were very resilient and persevered!
