Today we marked The coronation of Charles III and his wife, Camilla, as king and queen of the United Kingdom. All week children have been crafting crowns and learning about the new King and those who came before him.
Celebrations began with a lunch fit for royalty, including traditional fish & chips and a delightful strawberry coronation Muffin baked by our lovely kitchen team. Heading into the afternoon, preparations for the FOWPS Coronation were threatened by a storm, however, the clear skies prevailed as families joined the children and staff in the playground to sing the national anthem.
Miss Crossley and Dr Hopkins – the Chair of Governors – then planted two commemorative rosebushes to honour the coronation occasion and the remarkable reign of the late Queen Elizabeth II. A delicious cake sale and raffle then took place, with lots of fantastic treats fit for any king or queen!
Thank you to the FOWPS team for organising this brilliant event for the children and to the families who made it happen through bake-sale donations.
