The Queen's 90th Birthday Celebrations

Our assembly today marked the celebrations this week for the Queen’s 90th birthday. Children across the school told us about their royal learning. EY Hedgehogs and Badgers showed us their portraits of the Queen, their union jack bunting and the birthday cards they had made her.

Year 1 children have produced some fabulous portraits of the Queen which are up on display. They enjoyed a special birthday tea with cucumber sandwiches and cake and have written very entertaining stories about the Queen losing her hat.

Year 2 learnt facts about the Queen and the length of her reign, fitting in very well with their castle unit as they told us about Windsor Castle and how the Royal family chose their surname.

Year 3 created models of the key members of the royal family and they arranged them for us in size order in assembly! They had also made union jack bunting.

Year 4 applied their art skills work about Andy Warhol to create postage stamps with the Queen’s head. They explained what would happen to postage stamps and coins once Prince Charles becomes the King.

Year 5 visited the Tower of London this week and saw the crown jewels. They told us about the crown worn by Elizabeth II for her coronation and during the state opening of parliament. They were very impressed by the size of the diamonds and by the thickness of the safe doors!

Year 6 designed royal biscuits in crown shapes and then made them. They were absolutely delicious and we are sure the Queen would have approved.
