Pupils at Greyfriars Primary School in King’s Lynn came to school dressed as royalty on Thursday.

The costumes were part of their current topic work looking at castles, caves and caravans.

Children in Reception and Year One dressed as princes and princesses for a medieval day.

They tucked into a banquet which included chicken with rice, honey and spices, bread pudding, toast with honey and spices and fruit.

They had a top table of Kings and Queens and afterwards, the children played music and took  part in  medieval dancing.

The topic work is being led by Reception teacher Lesley Goodes and Reception/Year One teacher Helen Winnington.

The children will be visiting Castle Rising as part of their topic work.

Mrs Goodes explained part of the homework was for pupils to think about what questions they wanted answered about castles and people who live in them.

“At the start of each term when we start a new topic the children come dressed up and this helps to get them immersed in the topic,” said Mrs Goodes.

The rest of the school held a non-uniform day on Thursday raising money for the Philippines following the typhoon disaster last year.

Some parents manned stalls and the day raised £259 for the disaster appeal.
