The students from Cliff Lane Primary School - which opened on July 12, 1939, held a party to mark the milestone. They also were arranged into a big 80 for a special photograph.

One of the school's pupil's, Amelia said: "We are celebrating our 80th birthday and are burying a time capsule to be opened in 20 years time on the 100th anniversary of the school.

"The school used to be an evacuee centre which is kind of crazy considering we are now here learning before going up to high school."

The children filled the time capsule with drawings and information about how life is in 2019 before burying it on the grounds of the school.
