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.'

The celebrations continued on Friday with the school fundraising for the charity, Barnardo's. Children designed Victorian games and also learnt about the history of Dr Barnardo, who set up the charity.
