Coronation at Barley Close School

CHILDREN and staff at Barley Close Primary School in Mangotsfield were invited to come dressed as a King or Queen from the past, present or future as part of their celebration day for the Coronation.

Head teacher Jo Williams said: “We had Egyptian Pharaohs, Queen Victoria, people in Aston Villa football kits in preparation for the future King William – even Elvis made an appearance!

“We had a Coronation picnic lunch and all the children made crowns to wear. We love cooking, so thanks to Warburton’s who donated lots of bread, we were able to make cucumber and jam sandwiches, our own Victoria sponge cakes and scones.  We enjoyed eating this together.

“Year 5 also decorated rocks which are around the school grounds as a lasting memory.

“We sent some photos to the King and are hoping for a reply.”
