Youngsters at a Wimborne first school came together for a special tea party to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
The children at St John’s First School wanted to mark this momentous occasion and so planned a birthday party that will long be remembered.
Joined by families and friends they all gathered together on the school field to enjoy a very British tea and cake party.
Head of St John’s, Katharine Anstey, said: “The children were very keen to celebrate Her Majesty’s birthday and the event was very much organised by them.
“The sun shone and we all had a fantastic time marking the Queen’s 90 years.
“It is very special to be able to mark such an important national event and I am sure this party will remain in the memories of our children forever.”
As well as tea and cake the party goers also took part in a range of fun games.
Several children entertained everyone with their maypole dancing and Year 3 performed a country dance called ‘The Queen’s delight’.
The children also learned a new song for the occasion to wish the Queen happy birthday and the school’s worship team wrote a birthday prayer for the occasion.
St John’s First School is one of seven First and Middle schools in Wimborne Academy Trust, along with Allenbourn Middle School, Colehill First School, Hayeswood First School, Merley First School, St Michael’s Middle School and Witchampton First School.
