Parents joined their children for a picnic on the school field at Sutton St James Primary School.
Headteacher Claire Willows said: “The parents brought their own picnics and ate together with the children. It was a lovely day.”
After this picnic, all the children attended and took part in the sports day in which the four houses – Nene, Ouse, Welland and Witham – competed.
Even the local playgroup turned up to enjoy the event, held on the eve of the school’s 157th anniversary.
