We have had a wonderful week of jubilee celebrations in school! We began the week with an assembly to learn about why we are celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee next week and why it's such an historic occasion.
In class, the children continued to learn about the Queen and this special anniversary. They have completed wonderful artwork, Design Technology and PSHCE work making links to our British values. The children have also written about their hopes and dreams for our world for the forthcoming 70 years. Their work has been displayed along the path at the front of school to create our very own Lowton West's ‘Path of Hope’, just like the 'River of Hope' that is displayed along The Mall at the front of Buckingham Palace. We hope you have enjoyed reading our children's hopes as you have walked on the front path.
In addition to this, we had a special jubilee lunch on Tuesday. The children sat together outside in the sunshine and enjoyed listening to music whilst wearing red, white and blue. In the afternoon each class entertained the rest of the school with a song taken from each of the decades that Queen Elizabeth has reigned. For example, in Year 1 the children performed 'I'm a believer' by the Monkees to mark the 1970s. We all had a fabulous day! Please look out for photographs of our jubilee celebrations on the school website.
Thank you to Mrs Meighen, History Subject Leader, for organizing the event and to all of the staff and children who made the celebrations a great success this week!
