BRIGHOUSE schools entered into the party atmosphere to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee with picnics and parties.

Pupils at Woodhouse Primary School were busy creating a mosaic to commemorate jubilee and mark the forthcoming Olympics.

The Rastrick schools Carr Green, Woodhouse, Longroyde, Field Lane and Castlefields joined with Rastrick High to plant a red oak tree in their school grounds.

Driven to the Hove Edge school, children, who came dressed in red, white and blue, lined the way as the Queen made her way to the party.

They enjoyed a selection of games.

Hipperholme Grammar Junior School enjoyed the celebrations by decorating a crown biscuit before taking part in a variety of races

The day ended with a party and the cutting of a jubilee cake by deputy head Cathy Roper who is retiring from the school.

The weather may have dampened the grounds at St Andrew’s Infant School, but that didn’t stop pupils and staff enjoying their jubilee picnic in the school hall.

Mixed classes were kept busy throughout the day as they enjoyed face painting, royal collages, made bunting and created some of London’s famous landmarks to recreate the capital’s skyline.

Balloons filled the sky at Castlefields Primary School, Rastrick, as parents and children gathered for their party.

Each pupil paid for a balloon with a prize going to the one that travels the furthest.

A competition was also held for the best designed place mat which were all specially laminated and used for the party.

More than 1,000 people attended a special festival at Carr Green Primary School.

Children had their picture taken with the Queen, made buns, learnt a new song with Leeds band Hope and Social and learnt to play an instrument.

A DVD of head teacher Lesley Bowyer was played doing her skydive before releasing balloons and singing the song they had learnt.
