HIS­TORY came to life at a school in Ruis­lip this week when chil­dren dressed up in cos­tumes from past pe­ri­ods.

Young­sters from Lady Bankes Ju­nior School in Dawlish Drive have been learn­ing about dif­fer­ent his­tor­i­cal eras and got into cos­tume on March 24. Year Three pupils wore Greek and Egyptian cloth­ing, Year Four dressed as Ro­mans and Sax­ons, Year Five donned Tu­dor and Aztecs cos­tumes, and Year Six came in as Vic­to­ri­ans.

The school does it each year and head­teacher Ge­orge Knox said: “Chil­dren and staff al­ways en­joy do­ing this.

“The chil­dren have great fun dress­ing up in pe­riod cos­tumes and bring­ing his­tory to life.”
