Stifford Infants paint a jubilee picture

PUPILS at Stifford Clays Infant & Nursery School launched their Art Week Diamond Jubilee celebrations with a special assembly. Jonathan Catton from Thurrock Museum showed the pupils pictures of the Queen and how she has changed over her life as a princess and then Queen.

He also showed how she had visited Thurrock several times, the first during the 1953 flood disaster, and more recently to open the QE2 Bridge that is named after her.

Laura Costen, Art Co-Coordinator, thanked Jonathan for his presentation and then introduced the children to their first activity – to produce a portrait of the queen which will be entered into a national competition. She also thanked the children for contributing to the ‘family bunting project’ over the last few weeks. 70 metres of bunting has been made and used to decorate the hall and the children saw their impressive efforts for the first time.

Jaynne Crawford, Chair of Governors, congratulated the school on the family bunting project and said “what an enjoyable activity it had been and that it had got everyone talking about the Queens Diamond Jubilee.
