Children at Midhurst Primary School celebrated the queen’s 60 year reign by holding a street party on their playground.

The children all contributed to decorating the scene, by producing bunting and creating their own crowns for a picnic enjoyed by the whole school.

The celebrations then continued with a tug-of-war competition, pass-the-parcel games, pin the diamond on the crown, chalk pavement drawing competition and corgi treasure hunt.

“All the children had a fantastic day and the school owes their thanks to ‘The Spinning Wheel’ bakery in town for making a fantastic jubilee cake, Kavanagh’s Budgens for contributing bunting, lollies and other goodies and to the many volunteers from the community who came in to help out,” said headteacher Matthew Barnes.

Each child was presented with a diamond jubilee commemorative coin to mark the occasion.
