Children at Peckover School boarded their very own afternoon tea party as part of learning about the tragic disaster.

Local guests including the Mayor and Mayoress of Wisbech, Peter and Janet Human, also donned their best outfits to dine with the children.

Cakes, scones, jam, cream and sandwiches with the crusts cut off were all served around the dinner table on Wednesday (March 20).

Pupils could choose to dress as either a First Class or Third Class passenger.
