PUPILS at a school in Ludgershall got busy in the kitchen and delved into the history books as part of their Coronation celebrations.

The Wellington Academy hosted its Food Fit for a King competition on Friday with pupils tasked with drawing or creating a dish for their Majesties.

While the creative students were busy in the kitchen, the history geniuses were busy delving back into the history of coronations.

The entries went into a competition for their houses and potentially will feature in a national competition.

The Wellington Primary Academies also held outdoor picnics with the traditional British dish of fish and chips with a coronation-themed cupcake.

A spokesperson for Ascend Learning Trust said: “Events such as these are a great way to bring our trust together and celebrate it as a whole.

"We were all very excited for Their Majesties’ Coronation, the schools had fun creating their own celebrations ahead of the day.

"I have loved hearing and visiting as many schools as possible to get involved in the activities."

During the picnic, the pupils sang the national anthem, with a rotation of games, bunting hats and a special visit from the chair and Mayor of Tidworth Town Council, Mark Connolly.

The pupils spent the afternoon, making crowns, learning about the Monarchy and the coronation, and having a celebration.
