Staff and pupils at Tattingstone Primary School celebrated the school’s 175th birthday last week with a special Victorian-themed day.
Everyone dressed in period clothes in keeping with the school’s 1842 opening and enjoyed parlour games, Victorian art-making, and sewing lessons.
The day was completed with a special 1800s-styled classroom before the whole school came together with a special assembly and cake presentation.
Headteacher Beverley Derrett said: “They had a lovely day and it really brings it to life for them.
“They really experienced life back then for the day.
