Pupils at Westwood Junior School in March pulled out all the stops for a fashion show with a difference this morning.

Around 80 year six children - in groups of four to six - took part in planning, making and putting on a show based on recyclable fashion.

Nicola Allen, who works at Westwood Community Junior School, said the show was brilliant.

“They started at the beginning of the summer term, researching fashion through the ages.

“They had to think about recyclable materials and how they could be used differently,” she added.
