Happy 90th Birthday Your Majesty!

We have been celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday with lots of different activities around the school.

Year 4 were lucky enough to meet a real life author, Christopher Yeates, who wrote the book ‘God Bless the Queen’!

We watched the clip of the Queen parachuting from a helicopter at the Olympic games in 2012 and heard all about the history of the Monarchy and the Queen’s early life. Did you know that Queen Elizabeth had to collect rationing coupons to save up for her wedding dress as she married Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten in 1947, not long after the end of the war?

We asked Chris lots of questions and Eve, Darius, Rachel and Jehovani read exerts from his book. Chris signed everyone’s book and Gresham Publishing gave every child in the school a book to take home. Thank You!
