After weeks of preparation, pupils marked the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in style under sunny skies.

Langham Primary School raised the flag before the half-term holidays and had incorporated the landmark event into several subjects on the curriculum.

The school chose to hold their day of celebration, organised by Year 5 teacher Kirsten Ainslie, on Wednesday after the children had soaked up the jubilee spirit over the bank holiday.

After learning the national anthem, pupils opened the day with a rendition at morning assembly before a morning of activities.

Year 1 made crowns and capes for their kings and queens parade, while every pupil made a piece of bunting which were joined together and displayed at the family picnic on the school field.

There, the school’s ukulele group performed a song they had written for the occasion, while swing singer Sammy Dean sang numbers from the 40s and 50s.

Everyone was invited to come along dressed in red, white, blue or purple - the Queen’s favourite colour - to add to the patriotic mood.

A Jubilee scavenger hunt was held, and each child was presented with a commemorative coin provided by the school and Friends of Langham School.
