Edenham CE Primary School learns history of the last seven decades in honour of the jubilee
A primary school travelled through time to celebrate the Queen’s jubilee.
Edenham CE Primary School celebrated the Queen’s jubilee by learning the history of the last couple of decades, ahead of the half-term break.
To kick start celebrations, a church service was held to give thanks for what the Queen stands for and what she does.
Pupils were invited to spend the day dressed up in period costume-wear from each of the seven decades.
During the day, they learned about fashion, music and historical events which have happened under the Queen’s reign.
Michael Pasqualino, headteacher, said: “It was fantastic to see everyone make such a great effort, from our hand jivers in Year 5 and 6 to our neon dancers in reception.
“There was a great buzz around the school with singing, dancing, art and a range of other activities.”
To finish off the week, pupils enjoyed a picnic on the field while listening to the most popular music from the last 70 years.
