A Charlton primary school has brought history to life with buildings in the style of Roman, Medieval, Tudor, Victorian and even Viking times.
The History Street allows children at Charlton Manor Primary School to explore and compare different periods of history up to the present day.
It offers an interactive way to see changes in lifestyle and contrast the rooms, objects, clothes, and transport used by people across the ages.
The history wall was unveiled on May 23 by the Mayor of Greenwich Councillor Angela Cornforth.
International coordinator Sharonjit Chahal said: "The History Street allows our pupils to study the past and the legacies of the past in the present.
"It is an interactive resource connecting periods through time and encourages them to take a long view of such connections.
"We believe that providing children with variety really enhances their learning."
She added: "History must be made meaningful even to very young children."
