Kings, cakes and crowns at St Nicholas-at-Wade primary Coronation bake off

Coronation fun at St Nicholas-at-Wade CE Primary

A ‘Great Coronation Bake Off’ was a scrumptious slice of celebrations at St Nicholas-at-Wade CE Primary.

Children from all year groups produced a wide array of tasty treats interpreting the royal occasion in their creations.

The difficult task of picking the winners went to Rev Peter Russell from All Saints Church, Birchington, who praised the creative talents of the competitors.

The top four bakers each received a coveted St Nicholas coronation bake off green apron – and parents were invited to buy the cakes to raise money for the Parent Teacher and Friends Association.

As part of numerous celebration activities in the school, each child drew a tiny self-portrait to create a school tea towel displaying their faces for the iconic keepsake.

Pupils also attended a special assembly to learn about the history of coronations and what to expect from King Charles’ reign, ending with the national anthem sung with pride and enthusiasm.

The celebrations were completed with a big playground party with children colourful in their red, white and blue outfits to commemorate the historic occasion.

Head Teacher Taralee Kennedy said: “It was lovely having the whole school together and seeing the children enjoying themselves – there was such a positive sense of our community spirit.

“It is occasions like these that the children remember for a lifetime, which is why it is so important for us to make it special.”
