Heathersett Old Hall School has a right royal tea party

Junior pupils from Hethersett Old Hall School celebrated the Royal Wedding with a right royal tea party.

Years 3 through to 6 students arrived at the the Norwich Road based school on Thursday (April 28) dressed in red, white and blue.

One pupil even made a Union Jack flag into a dress especially for the party.

With their flags held high the boys and girls stood to sing the National Anthem before assembling outside for their hat parade. Hats of all shapes and sizes were made by the pupils over the Easter break, creations included a red, white and blue tiered wedding cake, crowns and straw hats with red, white and blue roses made from recycled carrier bags.

The garden, decorated with original Coronation bunting used on the best dressed house in Harleston 1953, was a hive of activity with egg and spoon races, musical chairs and a scavenger hunt called 'Harry's lost the ring'.

Winners of the competitions throughout the morning were given a commemorative mug of the Royal Wedding.
