Crown making, bunting designing and afternoon tea was on the menu at the March school in aid of the very special occasion.

Headteacher Anne McCarthy said: “The children have been learning about the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II, looking at her palaces, prime ministers and her history.

“Each child has designed a piece of bunting and they’ve been learning to sing God Save the Queen.

“Even the nursery has been involved and George James Funeral Directors sponsored the afternoon tea.”
