In our celebration assembly last week, pupils in Key Stage 1 and 2 spent some time celebrating the life of Queen Elizabeth II and held a two minute silence to remember her and her family. Reception pupils thought about who the Queen was and the whole school watched the video of the Queen and Paddington Bear.
Given the sad news, we have kept the display of holiday homework on the theme of the Jubilee up this week so our pupils can see this as a reminder of all she achieved.
Today, pupils were given the option of writing about the Queen and creating condolence messages which we will collate and send to Buckingham Palace. We also thought about how it is natural to be sad sometimes when we hear news.
