We had a lovely time in the garden this afternoon celebrating The Queen’s 90th Birthday.
The children wore crowns which they had made at home or at nursery. We all met in the garden to enjoy sandwiches, crudities, scones with jam and cream and … birthday cake!
The children listened to the National Anthem and sang Happy Birthday before we blew out the candles. We had to explain lots of times to the children that unfortunately Her Majesty was unable to attend after the children kept asking where she was!
The children had been learning about the Royal Family this week. The Sunlight’s had been looking at photographs of both the family and also her residencies. We explained that The Queen was very lucky to have at least three ‘houses!’
The Coach House have made Queen Elizabeth a birthday card which has been posted to Buckingham palace! I wonder if she will reply ….
One of our parent’s also brought The Sunlight Room a present of a castle and knights which the children really enjoyed playing with.
A lovely day was had by all and we must thank Julie, our assistant cook for baking the cake.
