Children at St John’s School in Wimborne had the chance to enjoy a huge Jubilee celebration before breaking up for half term.
Having spent the day making crowns and enjoying a lunchtime ‘street party’ with the neighbouring St John’s pre-school, parents were invited for a show.
The children, wearing red, white and blue, paraded around the playground waving Union Flags and carrying an enormous crown they’d made.
They then gave readings, performed a recorder recital, sang the National Anthem and belted out the church song ‘All Through History’ with new words written by teaching assistant Aly Selby.
After that they gave a demonstration of Maypole dancing.
Headteacher Antonia Dufek said: “Everyone worked really hard to make a great show that was performed in front of their families.
“We’d spent the day making flags and crowns and learning about the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
“Luckily we had great weather meaning we could have a ‘street party’ lunch.”
St John’s is part of Wimborne Academy Trust (WAT) and its chief executive Liz West said: “What a wonderful day this was.
“Hopefully the children will always remember the Platinum Jubilee and how they marked it at their first school.”
