Youngsters hail King Richard
Youngsters have been getting into the spirit of the Tudors.
Pupils at Glen Hills Primary, Glen Parva, dressed up as kings, queens, princes, princesses and knights during a day organised by the school to honour Richard III.
It was inspired by the University of Leicester's announcement that human remains found beneath a car park in the city were those of the monarch.
Tim Sutcliffe, head of Glen Hills Primary, said: "We've been following the progress of the university since they began digging last year and decided that this was too good an opportunity to miss in terms of celebrating local history.

"We've had people from Bosworth Battlefield visitor centre coming in to talk about the battle in which King Richard was killed.
"Children have also made clay heads of the king, and there have even been some mini archeological digs around the school.
"As year five were about to start a topic on the Tudors anyway, it's perfect timing."
