Priory Infant School pupils enjoyed a fun filled day of celebration to honour King Charles’ Coronation. The children and staff came dressed in their finest red, white and blue regalia to mark the occasion and the day began with a special assembly linked into British Values and delivered by PSHE Lead Mrs Mayo.
The children were excited to celebrate the historic royal event and loved listening to Nicholas Allan’s story ‘The King’s Pants’. Throughout the day the children took part in a host of activities related to the book. Children with the best designs for a new pair of King’s pants took home their own copy of the book and the youngsters wrote about what they would do if they were King for a day!
At lunchtime the whole school came together for a Coronation dinner with a traditional British fish and chips theme and all the children wearing their hand made crowns with pride.
Over the next few weeks, Art & Design teacher Janie Grout will be busy gathering the children’s Coronation quilt pieces together to create a lasting display which will take pride of place in the main school corridor.
Head teacher, Tracey Sandy said it was a delight to mark such an historic occasion in school with such a fun filled day, adding: “I am hoping the children will remember this royal occasion as fondly as I recall the Queen’s Silver Jubilee from my primary school days many years ago.”
