Mrs Holiday, the deputy headmaster, led two meetings for children and staff at Gladstone Road School.

Both gatherings focused on the children’s memories of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the life of the Queen, and the wonderful moment the Queen had from Paddington Bears.

This was followed by the national anthem.

Although there was sadness, there was great joy too, especially when the children remembered how the Queen hid a marmalade sandwich in her handbag!

A ‘Book of Condolences’ will be added to the school archives for future generations to look back on.
