Princes and Princesses
or soldiers if you aren't quite so keen on being a prince!
The children were very excited about the Royal Wedding and were keen to come dressed as princes and princesses, so on Monday we did! The children had made crowns over the weekend as part of their homework. They had to measure their heads and decorate it with patterns. Don't they look fantastic!
We went off to the hall for some drama. The children worked with their "chatty chums" deciding on their royal names and introducing each other to more princes and princesses as they walked around the palace gardens (the hall)!
Out for a promenade around the palace grounds!
But whatever happened next to our princes and princesses? We have been using this as a starting point for the children's writing throughout this week. We have been challenging the children to use exciting words and story language - have a look at their fantastic ideas...
We have been very fortunate to have a lot of students throughout the year to come and help us this year - and one was our Mystery Guest in the afternoon - and she gave all of Key Stage 1 an award winning performance of Irish Dancing.
