The children were very excited today to have afternoon tea with the queen. They greeted her politely and sat down to have a cup of tea (decaf of course) and a jam scone with her majesty. They told her all about Nicol mere school and asked questions about life at Buckingham palace. They also made sure that they stuck out their pinky finger as they sipped their tea!
Sian the vicar from St Peters church came into school this afternoon to christen our baby. The children chose the name of our baby by voting using a voting box. They chose the name Poppy Rose. Sienna and Sam were the mummy and daddy and Lilly, Frankie and George were the godparents. After the christening all of us had cake to celebrate.
The children have been learning about Armistice day and the symbol of the poppy today. They drew a beautiful poppy field in the creative area and collaged their own poppy using different materials. They wrote about the soldiers and the poppies on the writing table. They showed great respect and maturity in honouring the 2 minutes silence.
