On Friday 5th May, to celebrate the King’s Coronation, children and staff came to school dressed in red, white and blue. The day commenced with high street surveys conducted by groups of students from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The purpose of these interviews was to compile information about the public’s awareness of the Coronation of King Charles III.
Some of the questions from the survey included the following:
- How are you celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III?
- Can you tell me three things that you know about King Charles III?
- What do you think the role of the monarchy is in the UK?
One of the highlights of the day was a visit from two special guests, who participated in our assemblies – our local MP, Stephen Timms and ‘Prince Charles’, soon to be KIng Charles III. His Majesty was elated to answer the children’s questions.
Children enjoyed a hearty coronation lunch with their classmates. In the afternoon, they took part in a range of carousel activities including creation of a family tree, fact files and creating a time capsule.
To remember this historic occasion, coronation mugs (made up of self portraits) will be created as a keepsake for both children and staff.
Thank you parents, carers and staff for purchasing this once-in-a-lifetime souvenir!
Have a wonderful coronation weekend!
