Queen’s Street Party Lunch

Today, lunch was just a bit different from usual. We held a street party as part of our Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations.

Children had the opportunity to have a party lunch with sandwiches, crisps, veggie sticks, chocolate crispie cakes and jelly and ce-cream while music played in the background.

The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations

This week children will be learning all about the Queen, with every class being allocated a decade to focus on.

This morning (Monday) members of School Council started the week’s celebrations off with an assembly explaining what was going to be happening and announcing which class had which decade as they were picked out of the hat.

This afternoon School Council attended a workshop and were challenged to come up with some ideas for the new school prospectus.

The School Council was divided into three groups and after a lot of ‘brainstorming’ they produced three ideas boards which each of the groups then presented and discussed at the end of the session.

Watch this space to find out if any of their ideas will be used in the new prospectus.
