Children from the school’s nursery, years one, two and three donned red, white a blue shirts to celebrate Her Majesty’s big day, before enjoying a tea party in the school’s main hall.

After tea, music was played by the school’s senior cellos, followed by the Acremont pupils coming together to sing songs, including the national anthem and their special royal version of ‘If you’re happy and you know it,’ with lyrics such as ‘if you’re royal and you know it, smile and wave.’

Union Jack flags were then given to the children, before the school’s four house captains cut a celebratory cake with King’s Ely principal, Sue Freestone.

The children then congregated outside, where they formed the shape of a ‘90’ for a special commemorative photo, snapped from the sky by drone.
