GREASE was the word for little ones who dressed up to mark their school’s 60th anniversary.

Pupils at King’s Ford Infant and Nursery School, in Gloucester Avenue, Colchester, donned their best 1950s garb to celebrate the school’s landmark.

The event saw kids dressed up as Grease’s T-Birds and Pink Ladies as well a few deamboats and petticoats and a fifties spiv, ready to sell on their best post-war black market goods.

Teachers also got in on the act, on Friday, by showing off their best retro dance wear and helping little ones to jive to fifties music.
