A special vehicle landed at a primary school to help children honour the D-Day landings.
The DUKW amphibious vehicle, which is owned by North Herts Rural district councillor Gerald Morris, visited St Mary’s School in Royston as part of a project which saw children re-enact the Omaha beach landings.
A spokesman for St Mary’s said: “We do this to stimulate the children’s understanding which impacts on the quality of their writing.
“This is one of the reasons the Key Stage Two English results in writing are exceptional.
“The children write recounts and poetry. Some of their work will be on the school website over the next few weeks.
