Schoolchildren have had a 'wonderful' time celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee when they returned after the half-term holiday.

Youngsters at Cedars Park Primary School in Stowmarket spent a week learning about the Queen’s 70-year reign, with each class studying a different decade.

The children adorned the clothing style of the decade they had been studying for a big Jubilee party on the school’s playing field on Friday June 10.

Head of school Aisha Suhail said the children really enjoyed the day.

“Official Jubilee celebrations were held during half-term, but we wanted to give the children the chance to celebrate themselves, so decided to hold our own party when they returned," she said.

“The children have really enjoyed the week, with each class learning about a decade of the Queen’s reign.

“This has been a wonderful way to inspire the children’s learning while celebrating the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

“The Jubilee party was fantastic and it was sunny all day - we couldn’t have asked for better weather.”

On the day of the party, the children were treated to a host of activities, as well as ice lollies, on the primary school’s playing field.

As part of the week’s activities, each class was tasked with creating a window display about the decade they were studying.

Following the party, the school council was taken on a tour to see each window, selecting their favourite.

Despite some very fierce competition, Year 6 were crowned winners, earning themselves an extended break time.

Miss Suhail added: “The children worked very hard all week to come up with their window displays; you can see the huge amount of effort that went into each one.

“It was very difficult to pick a winner with such amazing entries. Each one captured the essence of their decade.

“It was a brilliant day and the children had a wonderful time. I’m sure it will be an event they will remember long into the future.”
