A Norfolk primary school was full of Christmas cheer as pupils met Santa Claus following a journey on the Polar Express.
Youngsters at Astley Primary, in Briston, were encouraged to come into school wearing their pyjamas for a magically festive day.
Clutching their tickets for the Polar Express, they were collected by the conductor and transported all the way to a bell tent outside.
Waiting for them was Father Christmas himself, who told the children a story as they were treated to a gift and a tasty hot chocolate.
The special day was organised by the Friends of Astley Primary.
Headteacher Jen Goakes said: "Our Polar Express day was magical from start to finish.
"We are so lucky to have such amazing drive and support from our friends committee, who made the day something to remember."
