North Norfolk pupils take step back into past
Pupils from a north Norfolk school have taken a step back into the past with a Victorian Harvest.
Children and staff from Happisburgh Primary School dressed in Victorian clothes for the event, which took place in St Mary's Church in the village, on Thursday .
The event was part of the school's celebrations of being 150 years old in 2011.
Lynda Clayton, head at the school, said: 'It was an absolutely wonderful event. The children did Victorian hymns, and composed music to one of the hymns which they had found.
'They also did a presentation with information from the school's logbook about why Victorian children often missed school, mainly because they were busy helping in the fields.'
