DRESSED in union flag colours, a school paid tribute to the Queen.

Leesland Federation Infant and Junior Schools dressed in red, white and blue to mark the Queen becoming the longest-reigning monarch.

The kids have really enjoyed learning about the Queen and the royal family.

Headteacher Claire Wilson

Everyone in the school got to take part in royal-themed activities within their normal school day.

That included making crowns, having a royal roast for lunch with jewelled jelly and crown biscuits and singing the national anthem in assembly.

Headteacher Claire Wilson said: ‘The kids really enjoyed learning about the Queen and the royal family.

‘We learnt some fun facts about her and they liked dressing in the union flag
colours.

‘It is also something different for the children to do while at school.’

The Queen became the longest-reigning monarch on Wednesday having overtaken Queen Victoria.
