Children have travelled back 100 years in time to celebrate their primary school's centenary.
Staff and pupils at Swanton Morley Primary School dressed in clothing from the period, while normal lessons were replaced with country dancing, and peg doll and hobby-horse making.
The youngsters also had to write with fountain pens and learn some of the playground games from the era.
The highlight of the school's celebrations, however, are due to take place on Saturday, July 8 with a centenary fair.
From 1pm to 4pm, people can enjoy everything from strongman and dog agility displays, to a hog roast, maypole dancing and singing performances from the children.
As part of the event on Friday, pupils also had the chance to learn about life in the trenches during the First World War and practised army drills in the playground.
