Junior School celebrates the Diamond Jubilee
Competitions, creative writing, speeches and
a tea party
The Junior School has been bustling with excitement about the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The celebratory programme included special English and Maths activities, a lunch menu competition, a Jubilee Mufti Day for charity, and of course an outdoor Jubilee tea party.
In English, all pupils have been undertaking poetry activities, creative writing and speech-writing in honour of the Queen. A selection of this work, along with the exciting maths activities they have undertaken, will be displayed in a special book of celebration. Pupils will be entering decorated Diamante Poems for a competition after half term, for which the best entry from each year group will receive a themed prize in Assembly.
The winners of the Jubilee lunch menu competition were Maddie Baker, Eleanor Loughlin and Madeleine Clark (Upper Two B). Emily Kelly (Lower Two B), won a special prize for the most original and researched menu. Their menu choices were much enjoyed at lunch on the last day before half-term by both the Senior and the Junior School.
The last event before departure for Half Term was the tea party on the Paddock, a colourful event with the children in red-white-blue mufti. The School is grateful to Exeter School Parents' Association (ESPA) for their generous gift of a commemorative Jubilee mug for every child. The mugs were presented by Junior School Governors, Mr Andrew King and Mrs Helen Clark.
