Youngsters and teachers donned 1950s garb to celebrate the 60th anniversary since their primary school opened.
Former staff and pupils’ parents also joined in the party in the playground at Sir Thomas Abney School in Fairholt Road, Stoke Newington.
Built in 1953 the school was named after Sir Thomas Abney who was Governor of the Bank of England and made Lord Mayor of London in 1700.
Business manager Coral Wasylenczuk said it was a lovely day with lots of singing, dancing and food.
“We did it on the 50th so it’s become a bit of a tradition now,” she added.
