The children of Everton Primary School have spent a lot of time recently learning about our country’s history and traditions, with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee firmly in their minds. The children have created flags, crowns, outfits and written pieces as part of their learning.
Our school choir had been practising many songs in preparation for the village’s Platinum Jubilee event, where they performed with aplomb. Thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and encouragement regarding the school choir’s performance. A big thank you must also go to Miss Spencer, our Year 3 and 4 teacher, who has been running our choir throughout the academic year, and Mr Paul Sydney for coming into school and supporting the children on their journey to the Jubilee celebrations.
At school we enjoyed a ‘Platinum Jubilee Tea Party’, where parents and carers were able to come into school and enjoy light refreshments together with their children in order to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II 70 years ago.
In other news, our Year 5 and 6 children went on an educational visit to ‘Safety Zone’ – taking part in indoor and outdoor activities revolving around keeping themselves safe. They also had a visit from our Water Safety visitors to help prepare them for their canal field study trip which takes place at the end of this month.
On Thursday 23rd June our Key Stage 2 children are taking part in a ‘Race for Life’ event on the Metcalfe Field. If you are in a position to make a donation towards our Race for Life fundraiser then please follow this link: https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/everton-primary-school-1
