ODST schools mark coronation

Schools across ODST marked the King's coronation with celebration events and themed activities.

South Oxfordshire schools were selected by RAF Benson to contribute to a commemorative photo book being sent to the King. Children at Fir Tree Junior School arranged themselves into a giant crown, while Benson CE Primary and South Moreton CE Primary made 'CR' designs for the aerial pictures, which were taken on an RAF fly-past.
