Bassetts Farm Primary School had a taste of tradition when the youngsters enjoyed an English country garden day.
Bug hunts, scarecrow making, pond dipping and games of cricket were just some of the activities pupils had been involved in as they embraced all things English.
On the day, the youngsters also teamed up with the National Trust, making lavender bags.
