Two school sites that are usually separate joined together in Upton Park for their Diamond Jubilee party.

Both buildings of Upton Cross Primary School, in Churston Avenue, came together to celebrate 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II.

After a series of lessons learning about the monarch and her reign, the children dressed up as a person from British history, the Royal Family, or in Commonweath colours of red, white or blue and everyone received a commemorative coin to remember the day.

The school were able to fund the party with the help of a grant from Newham Council’s Get the Party Started scheme.
