PUPILS at a Daventry school now have a very special place reading ‘throne’ installed to mark the Queen’s jubilee.
The new storytelling chair, installed at Falconer’s Hill Infant School, features designs created by the children to represent the Queen’s life including a crown, a corgi and a castle.
Andy Barton, a chainsaw carver, was commissioned to carve the throne. He had worked at the school before creating a values totem pole. The Friends of the School raised £1,700 needed for the throne with a wide variety of events.
Headteacher Coleen Wilkins said: “The children love sitting on the throne which is situated in the playground’s calm corner.
“They read stories and pretend they are royalty.
“It is a unique and spectacular commemoration of the jubilee.”
