Jubilee Street Party Fun!
We started our Jubilee celebrations wit a whole school street party. It was wonderful to have everyone together for a special event for the first time in a long time - and fun was had by all!
On Monday 23rd May, Swavesey Primary School celebrated the Queen’s Jubilee. In order to seat every child in the school, many chairs and tables were taken from inside the classrooms and carefully arranged into rows on the playground.
We had a costume parade, played some games and learnt about the Platinum Jubilee.
After that, we had some snacks(crisps and biscuits) and a drink each. Then, apart from pre-school, everyone went onto the field and we either got the choice to play some more games set by adults(flip the coin or royal stations) or we could play our own games with friends. Once we went back on the playground, it was the end of the day so we packed up, got our bags and went home - it flashed by so quickly!
On the way out, we had a bake sale to raise money for the school. It was a great day and the best part was that we got to celebrate with everyone together for the first time in ages!
