Music played and the sun shone as the Queen welcomed our families in to school waving from the balcony with her corgis.

Having spent the week writing poems and messages of congratulations to the Queen, and making crowns and bookmarks, our pupils spent Friday afternoon celebrating this once-in-a-lifetime event together. All year groups sang a song from one of the decades of the Queen’s reign, as well as the National Anthem.

They then tucked into a special picnic which included red, white and blue cupcakes.

Pupils then enjoyed playing a variety of games, made and run by our year six pupils including hook a duck and pin the crown on the queen.

Everyone left school with a souvenir key ring and memories of a wonderful afternoon celebrating this historical occasion.
