Alleyn Court students put on a fashion show as part of history lesson

Suited, booted, it's our fashion history lesson

Far out, man - plenty of colour was used to reflect the swinging sixties

Back in time - the glam seventies

So retro - pupils dressed up in Forties fashion as part of their project

First published in Echo News by

YOUNGSTERS at Alleyn Court Prepatory School strutted their stuff for a fashion show as part of their history syllabus.

Year 6 pupils at the school, in Wakering Road, Southend, have been studying life in Britain since the Forties and brought history to life with fashion highlights from the 20th century.

The show went from the flatcap Forties to the goth and grunge stylings favoured in the Nineties, and every decade in between.

Head of history, William Wilcox, said: “The fashion show brought Year 6 children’s research on fashion to life.

“It delighted the rest of the school, especially as a number of staff joined in – relishing the chance to relive their youth.”
