A FIRST school in Prudhoe will mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee by holding events throughout the week from Monday, May 23 until Friday, May 27.

Prudhoe Castle First School will hold a range of events throughout the week.

On the morning of Monday, May 23, the Cracking Crown Competition and commemorative plate entries will be displayed.

Children and their families are invited to design and make a 'Cracking Crown' fit for a King or Queen. Entries must be brought to school on Monday, when they will be displayed and a winner chosen. Children are encouraged to use their imagination and be as bold and bright as they wish.

As homework on Friday, May 20, children were given a paper plate, and asked to research commemorative plates from the past and design their own to mark the Queen's Jubilee.

The Platinum Party disco will take place after school, with tickets priced £2 per child and refreshments will be provided.

On Friday, May 27, local residents and members of the Tyne Community Learning Trust will attend the school for breakfast. Children from across the year groups will share key facts about Queen Elizabeth and about the decades she has reigned.

A Jubilee Lunch will take place where students will enjoy lunch 'street party' style in the hall. 

At 2.30pm on Friday, all classes will give a performance to officially open the Jubilee Fair. Families, relatives and friends can visit the school yard from 2.30pm until 5.30pm, where there will be a raffle, crafts and food. Children must be accompanied by an adult when at the fair.
