Maple and Willow classes on their best behaviour.

When we arrived at school this morning, we found a very official looking invitation to a Queen’s tea party. We spent the morning preparing for it. Preparations included making our own sandwiches.

We learnt some facts about Her Majesty and watched a slideshow of London. In the afternoon, we continued preparations by laying the tables with tablecloths and cutlery. We learnt from the Lord Chamberlain himself how to correctly curtsey and bow.

We then had a wonderful tea party, listening to classical music, chatting politely amongst ourselves and occasionally coming over to bow or curtsey before the Queen.
