PHOTO GALLERY: Happisburgh Primary School celebrates the Diamond Jubilee with 1950s theme
A north Norfolk school embraced the era of 1950 today (Friday) as part of their Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Bunting, a mini coronation and even music from Elvis brought the fifties to life for the pupils and staff at Happisburgh Primary School.
As well as organising a jubilee street party in the playground the children also put together a time capsule, planted a William pear and apple tree, danced to rock 'n' roll music, sang the national anthem and played traditional games such as squeak piggy squeak.
Key stage one teacher Marie Collins said it was important for the pupils to learn about the jubilee to remember 'what a real family time the 1950s were'.
She added: 'The children are really enthusiastic about the royal family as we also celebrated the royal wedding.
