BUNTING, banners and balloons were in abundance as an Ipswich school held a jubilee celebration.

The playground at Ipswich Preparatory School, in Henley Road, was transformed for the afternoon as pupils enjoyed a street party.

The celebrations were officially opened by a year six student Emily Lewis in her role as the afternoon's Royal visitor.

There was a gigantic jubilee cake for everyone to enjoy and it was cut by the school's oldest and youngest pupils.

Refreshments were delivered to the party on an old fashioned tricycle and there was a royal toast with glasses of sparkling apple juice.

And it wasn't just the children getting into the spirit of things as the teachers at the school gave a fashion show of clothes from the past five decades.

All the youngsters received a commemorative medal and the afternoon was brought to a close with a disco.
