GALLERY: The Queen is crowned (again) at Spixworth school

A new queen was crowned in Spixworth on Friday when schoolchildren re-enacted the coronation.

The half-hour performance by Year 5 and 6 pupils at Woodland View Junior School kick-started a day of celebrations, which included a children's concert for pupils and parents and a Jubilee fete in the afternoon.

It was the culmination of a six-week project for children at the school, which saw them make props including the orb, rod and sceptre in class, study footage of the coronation in 1953, and learn about the history of the period.

Spixworth Infant School pupils visited the junior school to watch the re-enactment, before singing a jubilee song they had chosen.

Headteacher Emma Adcock said: 'It was a wonderful day and we tried to get everyone involved so they could appreciate it, as it's something they won't get to experience again. The children put a lot of effort into it and really enjoyed the day.'
