Platinum Jubilee Celebrations 2022

As part of our celebrations, every child in school created a triangle for our school bunting. This was then skillfully turned into bunting by Mrs Scott and given to the Village Jubilee Committee who will be putting it up around the recreation ground for the celebrations. Within school, we had our own party to celebrate the Queen’s amazing achievements. We had a 1950’s Street Party in the playground. We made cucumber sandwiches, decorated crown biscuits and played some traditional games. The year 6 children rewrote the words to ‘Que Sera Sera’ to update them and ensure that they considered diversity and equality. We all enjoyed singing our new version together. Thank you to all the staff and the Year 5 Jubilee Team.

Willow Visit Wollaton Hall

Willow Class had a wonderful day visiting Wollaton Hall. We investigated the Tudor kitchen and learnt many things about sugar and spice. Wollaton is our local site of historic interest so our Tudor day showed us how the house would have been when it was first opened in 1588! We had a Tudor inspired lunch (with as little plastic as possible) and even learnt a Tudor dance to show Miss Allen.
