Norwich schools awash with red, white and blue for Diamond Jubilee parties
Youngsters at schools in Norwich had to begin their jubilee celebrations a little early to ensure they had time to party before beginning their half-term break.
Among the many schools organising picnics, parties and balloon releases were Kinsale Infant School in Hellesdon and Town Close School off Ipswich Road in Norwich.
Children at Kinsale Infants dressed in red, white and blue as they enjoyed an afternoon of celebrations including a magic show and a picnic with their parents, brothers and sisters.
Headteacher Louise Robinson said: 'Despite the weather, everyone had a fantastic time, enjoying time to talk, laugh and eat picnic food together.
'The children had also spent time learning about the jubilee celebrations and what this means for our country at this special time.'
