Parents and staff decorated the playground with bunting and flowers.

The event also welcomed a guest of honour, Mrs Tara Huffman, from the local church who is part of a group that regularly comes to tell the children bible stories through drama, using a scheme called Open the Book.

Tara crowned the May King and Queen who then went on to lead the dances and support the younger children

Katie Gray, executive headteacher, said: “Our annual May Day celebration is one of my favourite days of the school year.

“Again this year we were blessed with glorious weather and the children and staff ensured that the afternoon of traditional dancing was one for all age groups to enjoy.

“Children from all age groups, including our pre-school pupils, were involved in the dances. Dances included the Barber’s Pole, The Plait, Spider’s Web and Chrysanthemum - all of which make different and sometimes intricate patterns with the ribbons around the May Pole.
