Primary school pupils took part in an unorthodox English lesson at Bishop’s Stortford’s VIRE escape room.

The dozen Year 5 and 6 students were from Spellbrook, Albury and High Cross’s Puller Memorial schools.

The idea was to engage young authors by taking part in a unique experience that would become the stimulus for creative writing.

The children took on the roles of prisoners who had been captured by a rebel army. They then pulled together and eventually managed to break free from their captors’ clutches.

James Howard, head of Albury and Puller schools, said: “We're very fortunate in having such high-quality teaching staff in the three schools, and being able to innovate and share their expertise to benefit more than those children in our individual schools is very exciting.

"This is just the start and we have more projects planned throughout the year and into the future. We'd like to say a huge thank you to Ian and his staff for opening up VIRE especially for us and for giving us this opportunity.”
