A spokesman for the school said: "The children were very excited to meet the High Sheriff, who arrived in school wearing his full regalia, much to their delight.

"When they entered the hall and saw the timeline for the first time, they were amazed. The timeline looks marvellous, and pupils of Kempston Rural Primary School will benefit from this wonderful teaching resource for many years to come."
