Pupils and staff at Haddenham Community Infant School have had a wonderful time last week thinking about 'what makes Great Britain so great!'
The week culminated with a 'Royal Day' on Friday 23rd October, with a visit from the school's very own "Royal Queen", Mrs Davies (one of the school's helping ladies).
The children had a fabulous time welcoming their Queen as she arrived by limousine.
A small group of children presented her with flowers whilst the rest of the school waved their flags.
The Royal Queen then judged the royal coin competition. The competition "was incredibly difficult to judge", she commented, "unaccustomed, as I am, to performing such duties!"
She then joined the children for their special Royal Banquet, at lunchtime.
What a wonderful way for the children to finish for their first half term break!
(See lots more photographs of the 'Royal Visit' in the GALLERIES section).
