Famous characters from throughout history have been seen at Tickenham Primary School.

Pupils at the school dressed up as a variety of iconic figures including William Shakespeare and Albert Einstein as part of a day dedicated to all things historical.

A spokesman for the school said: “This gave our pupils an opportunity to find out about how our world and the way we live has been changed by significant characters in history.

“It was a fun event for all of us with a mix of Queen Victoria, Neil Armstrong, Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Cleopatra, Emily Pankhurst and many more historic people.

“A balloon debate was held to round off a brilliant day.”
