Many children dread going back to school after the lovely Christmas break – but that certainly wasn’t the case at Sutton St James Community Primary this week.

Pupils from all year groups returned on Tuesday to a special Doctor Who day, where they travelled back in time to explore four different eras.

The youngsters painted with sticks, made beads and enjoyed cave painting in the Stone Age, and made beads and found out about fairgrounds in Victorian times.

In the Tudor period they made braids and plaits and painted Henry VIII and when they visited the Vikings they made timber and straw houses.

Head teacher Claire Willows told the Guardian: “It was a lovely way to ease them back into the school routine, and children were also invited to dress up if they wanted.

“The exercise will also be used to enhance their writing skills, with children from the different year groups doing different writing projects based on the day.”
