Parents were given the chance to find out what their children had learnt when Honiton Primary School staged an open afternoon.

The event provided the opportunity for the children to share with their family and friends their learning from the past term.

The activities were all based around each year group’s topic.

They included a range of arts and crafts, such as building a miniature Tudor house, authentic bone and tooth necklaces and Stone Age weaponry - and a fun bug hunt held at the school.

There was also a historical costume competition and the chance to travel back in time to World War Two.

A spokesman for Honiton Primary School said: “The children love having the opportunity to show off their learning.

“The school provided refreshments for the visitors and a chocolate raffle.”
