On the 27th of May, the Jubilee Games were held at our school honouring the Queen’s 70 year reign. At school we put on face paint in the colour of the union jack and made our own rosettes. It was organised by the School Council and every year group took part. The morning started with activities such as four square, football and table tennis which everyone thoroughly enjoyed! Then we were joined by the early years and split into houses. The Y6’s were all team captains and did a very good job! We started with a game of over and under before doing relays. Everything from egg and spoon to sack races was played and it was a lot of fun. Even if it was a bit chaotic, everyone told us that it was fun to do different things they’d never tried before. Everyone received home drawn participation badges which they instantly pinned to their union jack coloured clothes.
The years went back to school, very excited and then went to the park to meet the parents. Then everyone headed to the nature area in Tabard Gardens, to have a whole school picnic. It was decorated very nicely with bunting and there was a very cool photo booth in the corner, which had so many fun and jubilee themed props. Everyone shared food, drink and the jubilee spirit. The kids played around freely, whilst the adults and teachers chatted together. Some people stayed for an hour whilst some stayed for a long, long time. The day was overall a success to remember Her Majesty the Queen.
We also collected some quotes from class members:
Zech, a student in Y6:
“I liked helping the younger children understand the relay. It was also nice to connect with other children in our houses from different years.
Killian, a student in Y5:
“I enjoyed the relay where I was back to back with Frances, and after persevering very hard, we finally didn’t trip over!”
Anniya, a student in Y5:
“I enjoyed table tennis because it was a sport that I liked to play. It was also nice that everyone could choose the sport they wanted to do.”
Mia, a student in Y5:
“I liked how we could interact with younger children in the games we were doing.”
