The clock turned back at Viking School in Skegness to 1945 with a street party to celebrate the 70th anniversary of VE Day.

Children dressed up in Second World War era costumes and clothes to mark the occasion on Friday, May 8.

The school also recently took part in a Pro-Kick Challenge with a coach from the Sports Connections Foundation working with the children on their football skills.

Pupils were sponsored by family and friends to see how fast they can kick a ball into a goal, and a medal and trophy presented for the speediest shot. Players received limited edition footballs, with half the money raised going to the school and half to the foundation.
