The blue bookmarks with gold writing were provided by the school and chairman of the Friends of Swanton Morley Primary School, Julia Furse, presented them to the youngsters at the same time.

A jubilee lunch was held after the assembly and all the children were dressed in red, white and blue for the special occasion.
