The Queen's Platinum Jubilee
On Thursday 9 June, all the children at Grange Park Primary School came together to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
We all learnt about the history of the Queen, her reign and completed an art activity to show our appreciation of her. Each year group was tasked with creating portraits of the queen using different mediums and styles and I am sure you would agree, the outcomes are truly inspiring.
As well as this, we held our own version of the Jubilee Pageant where we showcased talents and interests across the school such as KS2 Street Dance, Taekwondo, KS2 Drama club and the school choir and In true British style, we also had a garden party, even with the threat of rain.
The Garden Party involved the children playing a selection of traditional games with a royal theme, including maypole dancing, the Queen’s Derby obstacle course, a right royal quiz, the corgi treasure trail and musical statues with songs from the decades. We also had a picnic on the field with our school families. Nursery even got involved and came out to a royal fanfare and then proceeded to play parachute games in their crowns.
As with all of our family events, we are always incredibly proud of the children at Grange Park and the way that they exhibit our core values. It is always so lovely to see children across the years coming together, working collaboratively and including one another in their play.
