The playground of Awliscombe C of E Primary School burst into colour and song at its annual May Day celebrations.

The children, watched by proud parents and teachers, danced around the maypole as well as performing a variety of different dances.

Luke Hymans and Sophie Thwaites were crowned May king and queen during the ceremony last Wednesday. The May prince and princess were William Norris and Isabelle Carrison. The children also got to enjoy some delicious ice creams, which went down a treat.
