A street party-style event was held at a Market Weighton primary school to celebrate the 70th anniversary of VE Day.

All pupils at St Mary’s Primary School were entertained by a magician. The children have been learning about VE Day and what it was like for people at the time.

Headteacher Julie Sutherland said: “The children learned about how it was celebrated at the end of the war. We had a lovely day.”
