During lockdown Isaac Robert, aged five-years-old, who lives in Dudley, decided to write a letter to her Majesty Elizabeth II.

The bright youngster wrote to her about his school and how they have been continuing to learn during lockdown and also drew a portrait of her and her dogs which was sent in the post.

A while later, he received a response from the Queen's office thanking him for his letter, alongside some photographs of the Queen with her animals and informative leaflets.

Bethan Landon, Isaac's class teacher at The Brier School in Kingswinford, said: "During lockdown we have been supporting children by regular emails, calling parents regularly, sending over activities and books based on our therapy dog, Alfie.

"Isaac loves Alfie and the stories that we have written for the children about him, which inspired his message to the Queen.

"It was a big surprise for us and really lovely that parents support what we do and we are having a positive impact even though they are not at school at the moment."

The school has been inundated with messages of thanks from parents throughout lockdown for the continued support they have given them with homeschooling while schools have been closed.

Bethan added: "I would like to show our appreciation to all of the parents for their hard work.

"They have worked tirelessly throughout lockdown with home schooling and have been so grateful for the support during this difficult time."
