Platinum Jubilee Activities

Queen Elizabeth ll is celebrating 70 years on the throne this June!

The Platinum Jubilee celebrations will mark the 70th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth ll on 6th February 1952. The Queen’s coronation took place on June 2, 1953, at Westminster Abbey in London. 

There will be many celebrations marking this milestone and to join in with the festivities we have put together some maths inspired activities for our community to get involved, and have linked to some great Maths on Toast activities with a royal theme!
