    It maybe because we've only just gone back to school, but there has been no mention of doing anything with the children about celebrating/ acknowledging this piece of living history.

    Are you doing anything to mark it in your school?

    What exactly do you mean?

    I expect onmyknees is referring to the fact that The Queen becomes the longest reigning monarch on 9th September.

    There doesn't seem be many resources available to celebrate the occasion (I believe the Queen has asked for it all to be very low key).

    I found these from a Google search:

    The Church of England have published a prayer for Wednesday.

    Activity village have some colouring pages.

    One of our local pubs is the Queen Victoria in Rottingdean. In there on Sunday evening, we jokingly asked if they were going to change the name to the Queen Elizabeth.

    They aren't but they are, rather brilliantly I thought, going to have a special 'wake' to mark the occasion on Wednesday evening

    Not much help to the OP, sorry, but it made me laugh.

    Oh, how exciting! It would be a good topic for the day's assembly.

    I think there's lots of mileage in (for example) what it was like to be the children's age when the Queen came to the throne and the changes we've seen (technology, etc) since then.
