A HELICOPTER landing in a field is something you don't see everyday - but that is exactly what people at the Katherine Semar infant and junior schools were treated to.
Teachers, parents and pupils from the Saffron Walden school invited the Essex Air Ambulance to pop over and tell them all about the life saving work they undertake everyday.
Headteacher Jane Gilmour said: "It was fantastic for all the children and the adults. The helicopter landed in the middle of our field and each class got the chance to ask questions of the pilots and medics onboard.
"Before it arrived the pupils got to learn all about what the air ambulance does in a special morning assembly - it was great for them to see it in scale."
Pupils are now having a 'yellow day' to raise vital funds to keep the air ambulance in operation.
