Children at Burrowmoor Primary School enjoyed a right Royal treat on Friday in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday.
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.”
