YOUNGSTERS from Finstall First School took part in a traditional street party to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday.

The pupils were given a piece of birthday cake and a drink so they could take part in the toast during the event last Friday (June 10).

They also made Union Flags and bunting and sang The National Anthem and were provided with a kit to create a Union Flag kite which they could then fly at school and take home afterwards.

For a donation of £1 they were able to wear their own red, white and blue clothes.

Some of the money raised was donated to Worcestershire Community Foundation and The Queen’s own charity, The Patron’s Fund.

A small amount was also allocated towards the cost of the kites.

Megan Hunt, nine, said the event was a great chance to be her friends, Holly Holdstock, nine, added it was fun celebrating The Queen’s birthday and Aidan Sahota, eight, said it was good that she was nearly 100.

And Isaac Coleman, nine, asked: “Who will give the Queen a letter when she is 100?”
