Dressed in the colours of the Union flag and with homemade hats, teachers and children had been busy all week in preparation for the event.
Mandy Grayson, head of Padnell Infant School, said: ‘The children have been celebrating British heritage all week.’
She added: ‘They learned about British music, sport and food and even had a traditional menu this week.’
