On Friday 1st June the Junior School started off the Jubilee Weekend in great fashion. All of the children had been asked to come to school in fancy dress for a special ‘tea party’ celebration. Everything was planned for outside, but unfortunately the British weather meant an alternative indoor party had to be quickly arranged! But thanks to the efforts of members of the Parents’ Association, the dining hall was transformed into a sea of red, white and blue and a real party atmosphere was created. The children enjoyed their pre-prepared picnic boxes, with the highlight being a special ‘jubilee cake’ individually made and wrapped for each child by Mrs Kaye – a huge thank you for this.
During the day we held a crown competition for each year group with the winners getting a special jubilee mug. The winners were Lars in Year 1, Freddie in Year 2, Julia in Year 3, Alfie in Year 4, Joshua in Year 5 and Joe in Year 6. In addition, ‘Tedward’ the giant jubilee bear was given a good home as Grace in Year 5 won the teddy competition. Year 5 also had an extra bonus, thanks to Mrs Navaneethan. who sent in a large jubilee cake for the year group to enjoy at morning break! In the afternoon, children in Years 1-4 also received a special talk from Mr David Dinmore, Deputy Lieutenant of West Yorkshire.
Everyone had a fantastic day and some of the costumes were outstanding, as you can see in the photographs. A big thank you to the Junior School Jubilee Staff Team for organising such a fun day for the children.
