Year 1 Banquet

Year 1 came to school dressed in all their finery before half term to experience the delights and delicacies of a Tudor banquet as the grand finale to our Turrets and Tiaras topic.  They started the day by gracing Nursery with their royal presence and explaining to the Nursery children who they were and what they enjoyed doing.  Visitors included Countess Edie, King Neville, Sir Reuben, Musketeer Max and Princess Zara. 

Having also introduced themselves to the Year 2 children they then set to work preparing food for the lavish banquet.

Earlier in the week the children had worked tirelessly to make other amazing creations fit for kings and queens.

The children then walked through school to their banquet hall much to the admiring eyes of many of the Prep children.

During the banquet the children sang a traditional song to entertain everyone accompanied on the guitar by Lady Dinnigan.

They then tucked in and enjoyed the wonderful food and wine!

                   

 

Once again a great experience for the children, helped by their wonderful behaviour and great effort with costumes.
