PICTURE SPECIAL: Royal wedding celebrations at North Walsham and Blakeney schools

A host of schools from around North Norfolk have been helping to mark the Royal Wedding with their own take on the nuptials.

To mark the special day, pupils from Blakeney Primary School lead a procession through the village, from their school down to the quay and back to the village hall, before meeting up with pre-school children for tea and cakes at the hall.

Staff and pupils from other schools also paid tribute to the couple.

Christine Mead, head of Colby Primary School said: 'We have been doing lots of activities based on traditional British themes, such as a tennis, Wimbledon activity and singing the national anthem. The children have also been encouraged to come to school dressed in red, white and blue.'

The school finished off the day with a grand tea party and a visit from a real horse and cart.

Carol Evans, acting head of Sheringham Woodfields School, said: 'We are having a double celebration , wishing the Royal couple a long and happy life and also celebrating our Ofsted success.'

The school has recently achieved an 'outstanding' rating from the school inspectors, Ofsted. To mark the Royal wedding and their success, they have been looking at the meaning of weddings and learning about the Royal family, and on Thursday, they held their own street party.
