We have had the most wonderful day at Cypress today celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The classrooms have been filled with Kings, Queens, royalty and even a corgi or two! We’ve also loved seeing children and staff dressed in red, white and blue to represent the Union Jack flag. Please have a look at our photos below, of a very memorable day at CYP Lower.
This week we have had some special assemblies, where we have learnt all about Queen Elizabeth II and her 70 year reign on the throne. Every child has decorated a fairy cake today and joined in with some exciting activities, including making bunting! In Reception, children have been creating their very own Royal afternoon tea made out of clay. Year 1 have been busy creating Union Jack collage art work. Our children in Year 2 have been carving lino tiles to print images of the Queen in the style of Andy Warhol. We will be choosing some of our favourite pieces of art and getting these professionally framed so that we can display them in our newly painted Lower School library, commemorating this historic celebration. Every child at the Lower School has also been busy making a royal crown which they wore to our whole school Jubilee picnic on the field today. We enjoyed a delicious lunch, sang the National Anthem and enjoyed a party afterwards with lots of dancing. Thank you to our wonderful staff for their efforts in making today so memorable for our children.
We sent home our Summer term newsletters this week for each year group. Please click here to read them: Little Cypress Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2. This week we also sent home a newsletter with the feedback from our recent Parent Questionnaire.
