Gallery: Dale Hall Primary School holds Queen-inspired history day
There was fun to be had at Dale Hall Primary School this week when they marked the Queen becoming the nation’s longest serving monarch as part of a history day.
From the 1950s right up to the current day, different decades were represented by pupils in fancy dress.
Headteacher Alison Beckett thanked history co-ordinator Jenny Brian for organising the event.
Mrs Beckett said: “We wanted to link the curriculum to the history day and each year group were dressed up in different decades: Year 6 were the 1950s, Year 5 the 1960s and Year 4 the 1970s. We took this down to reception which took 2015.
“The children learnt about music and what people did in each decade.”
