Primary school children and their families enjoyed an end of term sleepover.

The event was held in the grounds of Runcton Holme school. Children slept in dens they had built and parents also got to join in the over-night stay.

Lead teacher Ashley Cawley explained a similar event was held last year and this year it was expanded, thanks to help from the newly-formed Friends of the School.

There was a disco and other attractions which included vehicles on display and a barbecue.

Some of the teachers also brought their motorcycles along.

Mr Cawley said pupils designed their own shelters and the school had been loaned  tents and tarpulin.

“The parents could stay over as well if they wanted,” said Mr Cawley, who added there was music and bacon butties in the morning.
