ASTON Fields Middle School pupils got to show their patriotic sides by holding a special Modern Britain Day.

The children took part in a range of activities aimed at developing their values of democracy, the rule of law, individual and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Workshops included writing and performing a poetry rap, their own Magna Carta and an alternative National Anthem.

They also debated current issues, played wheelchair basketball with the support of special guest Richard Miller and even tried creating some Banksy style modern art throughout the school grounds.

A volunteer from Amnesty International gave them a talk on human rights and shared stories of people who had some of their rights breached.

The children then entertained guests with some traditional British sports including croquet, quoits and bowls.
