Queen's Tea Party

On Friday we were delighted to see the turn out of red white and blue colours for our Queen's birthday celebration. Cups of tea, cakes, scones and traditional treats were all gobbled up to mark our Queen's landmark birthday.

As well as the party, pupils found out lots of facts about Queen Ellizabeth II and her reign. Some of the best comments are listed below...

She doesn't look like she is 90 years old. When I saw her on TV she looked really happy.

I bet her birthday cake was massive... it must have had loads of candles

We learnt about all the places in the world that she has visited. I didn't realise that being Queen meant you had to work so hard.

I now know that our Queen (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary) was born at 2.40am on 21 April, 1926, at 17 Bruton St, Mayfair, London.

I'd love to be Queen because you get two birthdays! We celebrated today, and she had her real birthday in April.

Queen Elizabeth was christened on 29 May, 1926, in the private chapel at Buckingham Palace.

I was surprised to find out that the Queen had a nickname. Apparently she was called "Lilibet" by her close family.
