Pupils at a Spen school got into the Victorian spirit by sampling some of the era’s most popular toys.

Hightown Junior and Infant School in Hightown Road was paid a visit by toy-maker and Victorian toy expert Kirsty Garside, who brought old-fashioned toys with her, such as wooden trains and skittles to help the school celebrate its Victorian day.
