Children in Morley have been stepping back into ancient times.

Over 500 pupils from primary schools across the town attended an interactive exhibition, The Amazing Journey, where they met characters from the Old Testament

Display stations depicting characters such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, David and Goliath, and Daniel in the Lions Den were put up in school halls and student actors in costume told the story of the adventures of each character. Enthralled children were able to complete a worksheet and win prizes.

Mayor of Morley Coun Tom Leadley joined pupils for a presentation of the exhibition at Queenswood School in Queen Street.

The exhibition also toured other schools in Morley including Fountain, Asquith, Seven Hills, Churwell and Victoria Primary Schools.

It was organised by Morley Community Church as one of several projects in its Community Links week. The church was also assisted by international students from Capernwray College and each child received a workbook from the British Museum to supplement their learning in school.
