A new school building in Ealing opened its doors for the first time with help the Mayor of Ealing.
They were also joined by acclaimed poet Michael Rosen.
Rachel Martin, headteacher, said: "The children love Michael Rosen’s poems and were really excited to meet him.
"Michael really brings the poems to life and the school was filled with the sound of laughter. It is an historic day for West Twyford Primary School and it was important to mark the occasion.
"Since the school’s beginnings in 1937 the school has seen many changes. We feel privileged to be part of this new chapter and to continue to build on our successes. I am sure both the children and staff will remember this day forever."
The building comes as part of the council's bid to expand schools, replacing ageing school buildings with a larger one's to meet increasing demand.
West Twyford's new building features tiled facade, photovoltaic panels with a curriculum garden, hen coop, pirate ship play frame, quiet areas and a large field.
As part of the celebrations on February 8, the Parent and Teacher Association donated a signed Michael Rosen poetry book for every child to take home.
