Queen Elizbeth's Platinum Jubilee
At Richard de Clare, we celebrated the Queen and her Platinum Jubilee before the half term break. Leading up to our performance to parents and residents from Colne View Residential Home, we had a visit from Sue at Essex Music Services who worked with our Year 5 and 6 children to compose a song to commemorate the Queen.
To kick start the celebrations on Friday 27th May, we all dressed in red, blue and white for the day and had a traditionally British lunch of fish and chips that we enjoyed in takeaway cartons on the field. We then played outdoor party games and basked in the sunshine with juice and a biscuit before performing for our audience.
This consisted of singing, ukulele and recorder recitals and a musical rendition of God Save the Queen from Miss Bickmore and Mrs Oakenfull on their wind instruments.
An enjoyable Jubilee celebration was had by all.
