A red, white and blue day was held at Patcham Infant School today, to mark the Diamond Jubilee.

Lessons were a very royal affair as pupils dressed up as kings and queens for the day, and took part in a range of Jubilee-themed activities.

Headteacher Margaret Enoch said: “It has been really good fun and very important to help children to understand the historical significance of the event.”

Pupils have been learning about the history of the Queen in lessons, and children delivered cakes decorated by school council members to Place Farm House care home.

Year One teacher Bridget Bennett said: “The children were very excited to be dressed up as kings and queens, and really enjoyed the quiz about the history of the Queen.”

Creative activities such as painting pictures of the Queen and making bunting and crowns have also taken place.

Miss Enoch said that the children had made lots of effort with their costumes, and everyone had very much enjoyed the Jubilee celebrations.
