PUPILS from an infant school have been having a pow-wow about history.

The school held a Native American week so that the children could sample life like the indigenous peoples of the United States.

Orchard Lea Infant School, in Kennedy Avenue in Fareham, held a week packed with activities, such as dancing.

The main display at the school centred around a large totem pole which the pupils gathered around at the end of the week.

The school has now broken up for the summer holidays, which will see the departure of two members of staff - Jennifer Lawes, who has been a teaching assistant at the school for over 20 years, and Janine West, who has been providing maternity cover.
