Coronation celebrations

The children at St Mary's School were delighted to be able to celebrate the imminent Coronations of King Charles and Queen Camilla by holding a non-uniform day on which the children were encouraged to wear red-white and blue clothing. Following a celebratory picnic lunch in the beautifully decorated dining hall, the children across the school took part in art activities in the afternoon and some beautiful pieces were produced. Well done, all of you!

And here are the completed 'coins' for the new King's reign - the collaborative artwork is to follow...
