A Right Royal Picnic for the Children of the Infant and Junior School! thumbnail image A Right Royal Picnic for the Children of the Infant and Junior School! Published on 1st June 2022

Last Friday the children across the whole of our Infant and Junior School were treated to a picnic to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Dressed in red, white and blue, the children completed lots of different themed activities throughout the day, helped along by our lovely PTFA – the activities included biscuit decorating, games and of course, a rousing rendition of the National Anthem!

The picnic took place in the beautiful grounds of our I & J School in Aldford, and luckily the weather understood how to behave, while it was a little chilly, the sun shone down as the children sat in mixed age groups on mats or at picnic tables.

Our new catering company Chartwells Independent provided a lavish picnic, including some very freshly made yummy and zingy lemonade to make a toast to Her Majesty, sandwiches, sausage rolls, coronation chicken goujons, salads and fruit.

There were jelly and cupcakes for dessert, and the centrepiece was a magnificent Union Jack cake, decorated with lots of fresh berries!

The Infant children have also worked collaboratively to create a beautiful card that they have sent to Buckingham Palace.

The children had a lovely time together celebrating the Jubilee, we just hope the Queen has as much fun!
