School children donned red, white and blue when they celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday last week.

Pupils and staff at St Mary’s School in Amersham wore the Union Jack colours and brought in goodies to enjoy in the afternoon on Friday (June 10).

The children enjoyed learning about the monarchy and writing poems about the four generations.

In the afternoon, pupils and staff went out and had a huge picnic, tea and cake on the field.

They played games and had a whole school photo taken as a memento of nearly 350 children.

They then sang happy birthday to the Queen.

There was also a bunting competition held and a winning class from key stage one and two was chosen because their bunting was particularly clever in design.

Dawn Lammin from the school said: “We found that our younger children might well live to see all four of the monarchs on the throne - well possibly!

“The children should remember celebrating this momentous occasion for ever and they all spoke so fondly of the Queen and how she holds such great Christian values for us to learn from.”
