Children at Kingsfield Primary School in Chatteris have been celebrating modern British culture.
Turning up in red, white and blue, the children took part in traditional maypole dancing, made Union Jack flags, learned about British traditions, researched the Royal Family as well as studying the work of the British Government and the structure of Parliament.
At lunchtime the children enjoyed traditional pie and mash and jelly with ice-cream for pudding.
Headteacher Joanne Tomlins said: We have identified that many of our children are not familiar with modern British culture and how diverse Britain has become over the years.
“We feel it is important for the children to understand the changes in order to embrace these and make sense of the world around them. I particularly enjoyed listening to the children singing the National Anthem, it felt like Last Night of the Proms!

Class teacher Laura Barnes who organised the day said: We had a fantastic time celebrating British traditions and values today, the children loved taking part in so many different activities.”
