Pupils at Overhills Primary School, in Kimbolton, stepped back to Tudor times for a day before Christmas and made leather bookmarks, candles, soap and ink.

As part of their studies on the Tudors, children from Key Stage Two took part in a History Off the Page session to bring the topic to life.

They also made perfumed bags, medicine bags, sewed samplers and painted lockets. In the afternoon, they enjoyed a banquet, performed a play, listened to Tudor music and entertained the rest of the school with acrobatics, juggling and singing Tudor songs. All the children dressed in Tudor costume for the day.

Headteacher Margaret Light said: "It was a day to remember - one that was certainly enjoyed by all.
