A street party fit for a Queen rounded off the activities at a Ponteland school to celebrate the British monarch’s 90th birthday.

Pupils in all year groups had a lot of fun and a plethora of paintings of the Queen were put up across Darras Hall First School, as well as bunting.

Staff led by Nicola Nicholson and Julia Nichol from early years and nursery and members of the PTA organised games, songs, a name the corgi competition and the celebration day last Friday.

In addition to the street party, this day included ‘the Queen and Prince Philip’ attending an assembly.

Headteacher Victoria Parr said: “The children have been learning a huge amount about the Queen, the Royal Family and the Commonwealth and it was great to see everyone enjoy the activities and celebration day.

“It’s beneficial for them to learn more about an important aspect of the country in which they live.”
