Monarchy week at St Paul's: Proud to be British
What an amazing week across the whole school- we have been learning many facts and information about the Queen in celebration of her 90th Birthday Celebrations. This learning has been very exciting from foundation to year 6- all of the classes took a different theme. The children in foundation found out about her special animals from her corgis to horses, children in year 5 were looking at the family tree, children in year 2 were finding out about her jewels and treasures. Within this learning we had portraits of the Queen and her family, budget planning for a garden party, diary entries, biographies, non-chronological reports and newspaper reports just to name a few.
I have been amazed by the amount of learning that has taken place, the number of interesting facts learned and the excitement that has permeated the school. Learning has taken place in all subjects, in history, geography, RE, English, mathematics, art, drama, PE (drills), music and PHSE. One of the best parts of the week was the exhibition created by the children with the guidance of their adults that was set up in the school hall to be enjoyed by our families and friends.
It was wonderful yesterday to invite many of our parishioners into share our themed lunch (provided by CaterEd) and talk to them about their memories and share our learning. One of our visitors had met the Queen and shared the experience with some children in year 3- how exciting! Thank you to our families who joined us yesterday afternoon for the Exhibition, tea party, games and assembly, shame the live link didn't work! It is always very special when our young people share their learning - they did this brilliantly in our closing assembly.
Thanks to the children and the staff for making this such a fantastic week that was enjoyed by so many and has enhanced the learning for everyone at St Paul's.
