Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebrations 27th May

On Friday the 27th May we will be celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday and looking at her role within the Commonwealth. As part of these celebrations we will be having a street party lunch in the playground, running a Design a Crown competition and watching the teachers do some Maypole Dancing. Each class will represent a different country from within the Commonwealth and spend the day learning about that country. Perform Drama Company will be running workshops for all classes from Reception to Year 2. They will be using a variety of drama techniques to look back through the Queen’s life and to help the children recreate some of her most iconic moments. Throughout the day, every class will also have the opportunity to learn some Maypole Dancing. Design a Crown competition We will be running a Design a Crown competition with the parade taking place during the ‘street party’. The crowns can be as inventive and imaginative as you like! You may wish to have a theme such as red, white and blue or base the crown on a country from within the commonwealth. Prizes will be awarded for the best efforts. Fancy dress We would like everyone to dress up for the celebration. Outfits could be red, white and blue or reflect one of the countries from within the Commonwealth. Again, please keep it as simple as you wish or go to town! Year 3 – 6 need to make sure that they bring their Games kit to change into for their lessons in the afternoon. Please send children with their normal packed lunches. We will eat together as a school, during our ‘street party.’ We are hoping for sun! We look forward to a fun-packed day.
