Pupils at a Northamptonshire primary school crowned a king and queen and got the chance to throw wet sponges at the head teacher as part of their annual June Rose Day fete.

Earls Barton Infant School opened its doors on Saturday, June 6, for a day of fun activities.

A June Rose king and queen were crowned as part of the fete, followed by a parade to mark VE Day to the songs of Glen Miller, which saw pupils dressed in red, white and blue.

Stalls and games also provided entertainment on the day, with one of the more popular being a wet sponge stand, which even saw the head teacher take a turn in the stocks.

Headteacher Pauline Shacklady said: “Our King, Queen and their attendants looked spectacular as they processed royally on to the field to take their places in front of the awaiting crowd of children and parents.”

As is tradition for the school’s annual June Rose Day, fete-goers enjoyed a display of country dancing during the morning as well as a new addition to the 2015 proceedings, which saw school pupils performing a line dance to the song ‘These Boots Are Made For Walking’.
