PUPILS from a Portishead school were given the opportunity to investigate toys from days gone by.

Year one pupils at St Peter's Primary School, Hallett's Way, were visited by The History People who presented a wide range of toys for the children to look at, talk about and then play with.

Headteacher Sharon Roberts said: "This is all part of our project to make learning more enjoyable and interesting. For many of us, the best way to find out about something is to experience it.

"We see visits from organisations like The History People as a valuable part of learning in our school.
