Children, staff and parents paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with a host of celebrations to mark the Platinum Jubilee.

Red, white and blue was our theme at St Laurence, where pupils and staff wore the patriotic colours for a wonderful day of royal celebrations.

Throughout the week leading up the end of term, pupils undertook a variety of Jubilee related activities such as crown making, creating a piece of collaborative Jubilee inspired art and creating commemorative ceramic plates before joining together on the school field for a party on the final day of term.

The school was awash with puddings fit for a Queen as pupils took part in their very own Platinum Jubilee Pudding Competition.

From photographs with a life-sized Queen cut-out amid a spectacular balloon arch, selfies with royal props to union flag temporary tattoos and doughnuts, a memorable day was had by all!

The youngsters were then joined by their parents for some special performances based on dances through the decades of Queen Elizabeth’s reign. Flags waved patriotically as children sang the National Anthem and the official Platinum Jubilee Anthem ‘Rise Up and Serve’.
