“All the children will be coming to school dressed in red, white or blue. During the morning activities, all year groups will be given a decade in which the Queen has previously reigned. Following some history work, children will create portraits of the queen from their allocated decade so that we can create a collage of the queen through the ages.

“Additionally, children will be making decorations such as tablecloths, placements, crowns and flowers in preparation for a whole school afternoon Garden Party with music, bunting and food.

“At the end of the afternoon we will be planting a tree to commemorate the Queen's jubilee which will become part of the queen's Green Canopy Campaign.”
