History day at Dale Hall primary to celebrate the Queen's reign with each year group dressed as a different decade.

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.”
