Enriching Lives

Woodhall Wapentake Article June 2023

On Friday 5 May 2023, St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School marked the coronation of King Charles III with a Coronation Picnic for the whole school.  The School Hall looked fabulous, festooned with union jack bunting and coronation bunting coloured in by the pupils from across the school.  Before they ate their lunch, the children sang coronation themed songs they had learnt together and the younger children looked wonderful in the crowns they had made in class.

In the Nursery, our talented pupils created lollipop stick King’s guards complete with black pompom headdress and bright yellow buttons on their uniform.  In Reception, the children made a beautiful suncatcher showing the profile of King Charles III, based on the new postage stamp silhouette and infilled with different shades of blue tissue….it looks fantastic as it catches the sunlight.  Reception class also made some amazing Kings and guardsmen from tubes and brightly coloured paper, finished off with gold crowns and jewels.  Wonderful work everyone.

In Breakfast and Afterschool Club, the children baked King’s guard biscuits decorated with edible gold stars and silver balls – they looked delicious and almost too good to eat!   ….and finally, 8 of our regular Breakfast and Afterschool Club attendees made a stunning piece of felt and bead work commemorating the occasion.  This was hung in pride of place in the School Hall for the whole school to enjoy.  A beautiful piece of collaborative work – well done and thank you to all the children involved.
