Children at a Wisbech school were treated to a right Royal day to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Orchards Academy held a street party complete with flags and a special Jubilee lunch prepared by the school's kitchen staff.

The children spent Thursday morning learning about the Queen and her coronation and about her role as monarch.

They had also made the flags for decoration along with special table cloths, however the table cloths had to remain indoors because of the day's high winds. They all had also made crowns to wear for the part.

Wisbech mayor, Susan Wallwork, a former Orchards pupil, was among the special guests who also included the Rev Matthew Bradbury from St Peter's Church.

All the staff including those from the kitchen got to join in the luncheon which was then followed by the planting of three jubilee trees.

The first was donated by the Bishop of Ely as the school is part of the Diocese of Ely Academy Trust, the second was donated by school pupil Arthur Bonnett and third came from the town's Rotary Club.

Matthew Bradbury aided by two pupils, Jacob and Luka, who had won a competition writing a jubilee prayer planted the first tree, Arthur had been due to help plant his tree but unfortunately he was unwell on the day and so Louis, who had won the privilege with a jubilee poem he had written performed the duty.

Then two Year 5 pupils, Harleigh and Lolah, who won a jubilee theme picture competition helped plant the third.

The afternoon finished with the singing of the National Anthem.

Headteacher Sarah Cullen said: "It was an absolutely fabulous day, there was a lovely atmosphere and the children behaved impeccably throughout. It was lovely that the whole school was able to join in the street party, even the kitchen staff who often have to miss out on the fun."
