A school celebrated a landmark birthday by holding a massive picnic.

The picnic is one of a series of events staged by Clarkson Infant and Nursery School in Wisbech to mark its 60th birthday. Pupils and staff have also created a commemorative mosaic of artwork and planted bulbs in the shape of a 60 in the front garden.

Headteacher Susan Dowling said; “It was a lovely day. The children really enjoyed celebrating with a picnic.

“Every child and member of staff have contributed a tile to a commemorative mosaic and they’ve been learning about the history of the school.

“Children and staff have also all been given a commemorative mug for posterity.”
