A right royal excuse for fun

Evesham Editorial 27th May, 2018   0

CELEBRATIONS to mark the Royal wedding were held across Evesham with youngsters at St Andrew’s CE First School in Hampton enjoying an afternoon tea party.

Dressed in red, white and blue, Reception children held ‘weddings’, hung bunting, designed flags, made crowns and enjoyed royal-themed lessons.

As well as learning about traditional Christian weddings, the children have learned about weddings from other cultures and religions.

At the ‘Royal’ tea party, pupils chatted about the wedding whilst enjoying a plethora of themed food and drink fit for ‘princes and princesses’, which was generously donated by the children’s parents and carers.

Headteacher Andrea Bailey said: “It has been lovely to get into the spirit of celebration sweeping the nation, helping the children to understand history in the making and support their understating of the British values of respect, tolerance and beliefs of all faiths and none.”

Meanwhile, patriotic staff at Evesham’s Tesco turned the store red, white and blue with a host of decorations (left) to mark the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
