Pupils at a West Norfolk school paid their war-time tributes to the country’s heroes on Armistice Day.

Covid restrictions prevented youngsters from Gaywood’s Howard Junior School from attending this year’s Remembrance Sunday ceremony at Tower Gardens in King’s Lynn, which was a small, closed event.

Instead, the school held its own poppy wreath-laying and pupils dressed up in roles including nurses and evacuees.

Headteacher Gregory Hill said the children were determined to remember the fallen and those who had suffered in world conflicts.

“We had an event here including actually dressing up as war characters to have a living history experience,” said Mr Hill.

He said the school was also “thrilled” to receive a letter from the Lord  Lieutenant’s office to the staff and “wonderful pupils”.

The Lady Dannatt  MBE said the school’s Lest We Forget tribute was “uplifting and quite wonderful”.
