Pupils at Little Thetford Primary School went all out to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

The children and staff dressed in the style of the 1940s, while head teacher Rob Litten dressed as an RAF pilot.

They enjoyed a traditional picnic with spam and jam sandwiches, learnt the words to and sang God Save The Queen and played war themed games.

Mr Litten said: “We had a traditional picnic lunch with spam and jam sandwiches, the pupils learnt the words to God Save The Queen and we held a two minutes silence.

“As a school, we try to mark milestones in history because it is so important the children understand what they mean.”
