Sewing and woodwork were introduced to the timetable for youngsters in Cawston today as they celebrated 60 years of the village primary school by stepping back in time.
Pupils were transported back to the 1950s by getting dressed up in the uniform of the day and trying their hand at some traditional lessons, including handwriting and maypole dancing.
And the historic activities extended outside the classroom as boys and girls enjoyed break time in separate areas of the playground, and used separate entrances. Headteacher Kay Swann said the children had really enjoyed the special lessons.
A a nostalgic open evening was also held for past pupils and staff on Thursday, where around 70 guests reminisced over an exhibition of old photographs, records and registers.
The school, which counts TV legend Stephen Fry as one of its former pupils, used to be situated in the school house in the middle of the village, but relocated to its current building in Aylsham Road in 1953.
