A dedicated First World War Day on Tuesday allowed children the opportunity to dress up in period costumes and to take part in a 1918 school day.

They re-enacted classroom activities, playground games and even sampled a typical school dinner of that time.

Events will continue after half-term when pupils will be visited by the great niece of Corporal Leggett, a soldier from Wilby who fought in the war.

She will be sharing memorabilia and family stories .

The school is inviting everyone to join them for a special evening on Wednesday, November 7, at 6pm.
