Children, staff and parents across schools in The Stour Academy Trust have topped off a week of jubilee celebrations with marvellous street parties and afternoon activities to mark the Queen’s 70 years of leadership.
After a week of royal themed lessons and activities, parents joined their children in glorious weather to enjoy picnics on the school field, bake off competitions, choir singing, and even maypole dancing.
Earlier this month, all schools in the Trust marked the Jubilee celebrations with a permanent dedication in the form of a silver birch tree planted at every school. The trees are planting are part of the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”. The jubilee trees will be added to The Queen’s Green Canopy online map which can be found at https://queensgreencanopy.org/

Reception at Thistle Hill Academy made Queen shaped sun catchers.
Willow class at Chilmington Green Primary School made commemorative plates.
