TRADITIONAL games including marbles, blind man’s bluff, dominoes and hopscotch were enjoyed by Clevedon children.

Year five and six pupils at St John’s Primary School in Clevedon dressed as Victorians for the day and took part many games enjoyed by children at that time.

The games were put on as part of a few days of health-themed activities and were aimed at teaching the children how they would have kept fit during Victorian times.
