1. I finally get to defrost myself after long sessions in a freezing classroom. Turn down the AC!

2. It saves me the embarrassment of falling asleep in class after four back-to-back lessons.

3. I can finally be where my mind has been all morning – at the tuck shop. Yippee!

4. Goodbye boring text books, hello Jacqueline Wilson!

5. I can talk as much as I want – well it does help me polish my conversational and social skills.

6. It saves me money on tanning lotions and gyms – I stay fit and beautiful just by running around the playground.

7. There’s no excuse to miss that healthy sandwich sitting in my lunch box.

8. It’s the perfect time to show off my playground skills.

9. It’s a chance to catch up with the homework I forgot to complete at home – whoops!

10. I get a long-awaited break from teachers hovering over me.
