The Queen’s 90th Birthday party
We had a wonderful day celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday.
The children and staff all looked wonderful dressed in their red, white and blue as they gathered for a Birthday Assembly to mark the occasion. Parents were entertained by each class – Reverend David’s bell ringers got us off top a fantastic start with their rendition of London Bridge is falling down before the children of FS sang London Bridge – with actions! The bell ringers played Oranges and Lemons before Years 3 and 4 sang ‘Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner’ with a special last verse….’Maybe it’s because I’m a Northener!’ Year 1 and 2 sang ‘Oranges and Lemons’ and Year 5 and 6 followed Reverend David’s message with their own prayers before the assembly finished with the National Anthem.
To read some of the wonderful comments from parents following the assembly, click on the link below:
‘I think the assembly was fantastic. It makes me proud to feel British when the school and nation celebrate our Queen. So many traditions have been lost through the years so thank you for keeping them going. All the children looked amazing.’
‘Fabulous assembly!! Wonderful singing from all the children (and parents!) the quiz was a fantastic interactive idea and everyone looked great in their red, white and blue. Well done everyone.’
The children then did a variety of lessons related to the Queen before coming out for their Birthday Street Party.
This was followed by an afternoon of traditional sports on the school field. I think the staff enjoyed it just as much as the children!
If you look closely you might notice that the Queen herself popped along to take part in some of the events!
The Queen also paid a visit to the children in our Nursery.
We would like to thank All Saints Church for their kind gift to each child of the book ‘The Servant Queen’ in which Her Majesty tells of her Christian Faith.
