Coronation Celebration

4th May 2023
We are very excited about the King’s Coronation and have found out some interesting facts about him and the forthcoming coronation.
Yesterday in art the children in KS2 painted soldiers, a carriage and horses so that we could create a whole school picture to mark the King’s Coronation.
We used a photograph of it to make a card and have sent it with all our good wishes and signatures to the King.
Today we have had wonderful day too. Class One and Class Three worked together to plan, prepare and host a mock coronation ceremony. After choosing names out of a hat (thank you Joshua for the loan of your amazing hat!!) to find out who would be our King and Queen, they then got busy with preparing the tasty treats for the Coronation Tea Party…. baking cakes and biscuits then decorating them. Alongside this, the children learnt about King Charles and the key elements of a coronation, decorated commemorative pebbles (the children will bring these home soon!) and coloured in Union Jacks.
We culminated our day with a Coronation Ceremony, led by The Archbishop of Canterbury AKA S, to crown King A and Queen Z. Mrs Johnson, Miss White and Class Four were our honoured guests. Then we sat down to a sumptuous tea party complete with crown jam sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, fairy cakes and crown biscuits!
Class One and Three worked so well together, it was a privilege to see! We hope you all enjoyed the day as much as we did and take away many happy memories that we have all created!
