A guided bus tour and a traditional dance show were just two of the ways schoolchildren learned more about a Wisbech legend.
Pupils from Anthony Curton Primary School in Walpole St Peter have been learning about Tom Hickathrift who lived in the Smeeth over 400 years ago.
Children went on a tour of churchyards of surrounding villages such as Terrington St John and West Walton to find evidence of Hickathrift's existence, including his grave.
They also studied signs depicting Tom and his cart used to kill an ogre living on the Smeeth.
BBC Radio Cambridgeshire's Nicky Stockman and Gordon Phillips from the tall tales of Tom project joined the children on tour and at the school where year six pupils acted Hickathrift's story through dance and music.
