As part of lessons on Victorian history, pupils at Kirkby Primary School in Bentley have been given a taste of what life was like for school children in the 19th century.

Teaching staff dressed up in Victorian clothing to ‘bring Victorian history to life’ for children in years one to three.

Deputy headteacher Carol Clifford said: “The children really enjoyed the special history lessons.”
