To mark the Coronation of King Charles III this weekend, the Junior sections of both Wakefield Girls’ and QEGS joined together to celebrate with a morning of exciting coronation activities. QEGS Junior boys joined us in St John’s House and Wakefield Girls’ were welcomed into QEGS Junior section.
Students learnt together about the importance of the Coronation and what style of monarchy the new King will bring to the country, working collaboratively in their year groups.
One of the students’ favourite activities of the morning was a whole school commemorative postage stamp competition, a chance to share ideas, express their creative design skills to produce the stamp however they wanted. Ideas included the King’s portrait, a throne and even had a royal sheep! Other activities included a jigsaw style collage which will be put on display in St John’s House next week. The students designed a replica of the crown to wear throughout the day, and some students participated in a monarchy-themed scavenger hunt in the playground! There was also a whole year group debate, which enabled girls and boys to share their ideas and opinions on the monarchy, in a calm and respectful manner.
It was a memorable and exciting morning learning about the new monarch, and a great opportunity to work together and celebrate this momentous historical occasion! A great learning experience for all.
