Celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee

We had a very exciting week in school taking part in Jubilee Celebrations. 

Year 3 pupils took part in a Creaturama Workshop. They had to use junk to make a Jubilee Carriage and design the inside of it. The ideas they came up with were brilliant, ranging from jet-propelled carriages to carriages which had a private jacuzzi! 

Some of our pupils were incredibly fortunate as they were chosen by Richard Priest OBE DL as winners for the school Design a Mug/Flag competition.  Amelia U, Sienna J, Oliver M, Rosie B and Skye H were accompanied by Mrs Lawrence, Head of School and Mrs Payne, Office Manager, alongside some of the secondary pupils; Corey Mead, Charlotte Jenkins, Oliver Eglese and Blaize Shilton to present their flag and mugs to the Earl and Countess of Wessex.  They all had a fabulous afternoon.

Pupils also spent time creating some royal artwork and exploring a specific decade in the Queen's reign. The whole school looked fantastic in their red, white and blue clothes. Our Reception - Year 4 pupils spent the afternoon playing some traditional party games and joined together to sing their Jubilee song.

Year 5 and 6 pupils visited the secondary site to take part in The Queen’s Jubilee Inter House Cup. All pupils took part in rounders and football Inter House tournaments led by the secondary school Year 10 sports leaders. After all of the events from both Year 5 and 6 were completed, the results were: 

The Jubilee Rounders Cup was won by Red House. 

The Jubilee Football Cup was won by Green House. 

At lunchtime, all of the Year 5 and Year 6 pupils toasted the Queen, making a giant 70 shape, as well as planting two Oak trees in commemoration of the Queen’s Jubilee. These were planted by our Eco Champions and will each live and grow with a plaque on both school sites.

It was wonderful to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with our pupils. They were excited to learn about the Queen’s reign and to discover what the Platinum Jubilee is all about. It was fantastic to finish off the week with traditional party games and to gather together to sing our jubilee song.
