Pupils from Woodbury Salterton Church of England Primary School turned 500 milk containers into an igloo as part of their work on living in cold places.

After several weeks of carton collecting by children and parents, the traditional home of an Inuit was put together in two days.

The youngsters had been learning about life in Greenland in the past and today and how it only takes half an hour for two Inuits to create a real igloo.

Woodbury Salterton head teacher Duncan Nelmes said: “The children have enjoyed playing in it and now plan to use it as an outside reading den.”
