Youngsters at two Fenland schools have marked the Queen’s record breaking rein in style.

Children and staff at the Anthony Curton Primary School, Walpole St Peter, and Tilney All Saints’ Primary donned red white and blue to mark this milestone anniversary.

Many youngsters at the schools were dressed at kings, queens, princes and princesses.

On September 9, Queen Elizabeth became the country’s longest reining monarch by surpassing the record set by her great great grandmother Queen Victoria.

Instead of the usual lessons, youngsters spent the day learning about the Royal family and the history behind the monarchy.

Catering staff gave lunch a royal touch – providing red, white and blue cup cakes for the children.
