Queen's 90th birthday Bare Trees Street Party
As a whole school we celebrated the Queens 90th birthday and the history of street parties. We came to school wearing the colours of the union jack and had our very own ‘Bare Trees Street Party’. The tables were red, blue and white and we all had our own union jack flag to wave with pride. We enjoyed a crown biscuit and some juice before setting off to participate in traditional sporting activities, such as sack races and tug of war. We were lucky enough to enjoy an ice cream served by our local ice cream man. The ice cream was yummy!
In the afternoon we were taught the history of street parties.
Did you know the first street party was in 1919?
We had lots of fun for the Queens 90th birthday!
Queen's birthday card
The Queen has two birthdays a year and her official birthday is April 21st. The school and eco council worked together to make a card for her and we sent it in the post hoping she would read it.
Guess what happened?
We got a letter back!
We were so surprised to receive a letter from the Queen thanking us for our card. The Queen even sent a photo of herself along with her letter. We are so happy the Queen saw, and made reference to, our personalised card!
