The Queen’s 90th birthday was big news at Stone School with a commemorative coin treat at the end of it.

Members of Stone School Eco Council, children with April birthdays and staff joined forces with the Parish Council to plant nine trees around the new car park in the war memorial ground.

The following day, children and staff arrived in school in their party clothes ready for a day of celebrations. Each class prepared a sweet treat for the Great Stone Bake Off!

All children assembled in the hall to the sound of the national anthem for Deputy Head - Sarah Hale to judge the fantastic creations.

Contenders included a ‘Rocky Road’ style Corgi, the Queen’s favourite chocolate cake, a trifle in the style of the Union Jack, a chocolate biscuit bonanza, traditional cream scones and cupcakes decorated in the colours of the Union Jack.

The winners were children in year 2, who produced a Victoria sponge with fresh strawberries and cream. The proud winners won a cookbook for their class and commemorative certificates for themselves.

All the children then took part in a series of activities and performances to well known songs.

Brian Rogers and Enid Robinson, members of Stone Parish Council, visited each classroom and awarded a commemorative coin to each child in the school.

A spokesman for the school, said: “We are extremely grateful for all their support in providing a memorable couple of days for the children.

“At the end of an exciting day, grown ups and children left with a smile on their faces and many happy memories. The children have written letters to the Queen in order to explain all of the fun they had to celebrate her birthday - we just hope she had as much fun as we did!”
