The school’s parents’ association also generously provided free soup, bread and tea and coffee, to keep everyone full and happy while they were in school.

Head teacher Mr John Cattermole said: “We didn’t know how many families would come along, but we think that more than 100 attended, which shows how popular it was.

“It was wonderful to see so many parents coming along and joining in to have fun with their children. We are so grateful to everyone who gave their support’.

Elsie Wigglesworth, 6, added: “This was a very exciting day, I enjoyed the archery and the playdough.”
