Children and staff at St John's Church School in Wellington enjoyed a week full of fun, games and activities in the lead up to Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee.

Throughout the week the children took part in many royal-themed activities, including decorating bunting and making their very own crowns fit for royalty.

They also learnt all about the Queen, her role and the history of the Royal Family, making many pieces of artwork in the process.

This all came together for the main event on the 27th of May, a whole day dedicated to celebrating Her Majesty.

The pupils started the day with a crown parade into an assembly, dressed fittingly in red, white and royal blue. They enjoyed a quintessentially British feast of fish and chips for lunch, followed by a delicious trifle for pudding, and the celebrations continued into the afternoon.

The whole school gathered together on the main playground, where the pupils and staff together enjoyed an afternoon tea of cake and squash.

With flags waving, the sun shining and the National Anthem playing, the day was drawing to a close, but not before the winners of the Crown competition were presented with their prizes and certificates.

To top off a fantastic week of festivities, the pupils were gifted with commemorative coins from the Wellington Town Council, and a special Jubilee badge made for the children by staff.
