Pupils formed a circle of love around a village church when they took part in the ancient tradition of clypping.
Around 85 youngsters from Sandringham and West Newton Primary School joined hands with parents and staff in a ring around West Newton church on Friday. They took part in a dance-like ceremony, before singing hymns inside the church.
The school has taken part in the annual custom for many years as part of Mothering Sunday celebrations.
Anglo-Saxon in origin, clypping is derived from the word clyppan, meaning to embrace or clasp.
The church is one of only a few nationwide which observes the tradition.
