The flags have been flying at schools across West Norfolk as pupils joined in the celebrations marking the Queen’s 90th birthday.
Parties and fetes were held at several schools across the borough, while others presented mementoes to their youngsters to commemorate the occasion.
However, one school decided to take their celebrations to the Queen, or at least to her estate.
The 75 students of the Southery Academy visited Sandringham on Friday to deliver their handmade birthday cards both for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, who celebrated his 95th birthday that day.
They then enjoyed a walk on the estate’s woodland trail before tucking into a picnic fit for a queen, including jam tarts and corgi-shaped biscuits.
Principal Julian Goodrum said: “It is important to give them experiences like this and memories for the future.
“Attending Sandringham during the week of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations will hopefully be a memory for these young people to cherish.
“It seemed a natural choice to visit Sandringham and has been a great day out for all.”
Others held their celebration events at their schools, though the Queen, or at least a cardboard cutout, did put in an appearance at the Howard Junior School party in Lynn.
Each of the school’s 205 pupils were presented with a commemorative gold coin.
And headteacher Gregory Hill said: “It was a very special party which our pupils greatly enjoyed.”
There was also a party at the Howard Infant School, where pupils and parents alike were invited to enjoy a celebratory picnic and games.
Meanwhile, children at Docking Primary also received commemorative coins in a presentation made by the village’s parish council chairman, John Wroth, and councillor Sandra Edge.
Elsewhere, a special guest joined the children at Marshland St James Primary for their royal day.
The Bishop of Ely, the Rt Rev Stephen Conway, met youngsters and staff during their celebrations on Friday.
The festivities also had a fundraising theme at Snettisham Primary, where a fete, organised by the school’s PTA, was held on Friday afternoon for school funds. The total raised is not yet known.
Meanwhile, dancing was on the agenda for youngsters at Great Massingham CE Primary, as they learnt some of the routines that have been popular throughout the Queen’s life.
They also designed and made their own crowns before enjoying a street party lunch.
And it wasn’t just the flags that were flying at the Terrington St Clement Community School, where youngsters took part in an afternoon of kite flying on Thursday afternoon.
