Last week the children learnt all about St George’s Day, the Queen and British Values. We finished this special week with a 90th birthday party for the Queen. All of the children made an English flag and were given party food which they ate out on the school field. After this the children played traditional British games such as duck duck goose, cricket and hopscotch. Everyone had an amazing afternoon – one that would have made the Queen proud!

They had great fun lifting logs and looking through the plants and grass to find all types of different creepy crawlies.
