This afternoon Mr Bower came into year 2 as a visitor from Darton Church. He spoke to year 2 about the platinum jubilee.
Firstly, the children told Mr Bower how they had celebrated and many children mentioned street parties. Then the children had fun playing 'the Queen says' game where they had to listen carefully to instructions. Next, the children discussed what was important for a leader to be and how the Queen led the country. Then Mr Bower read the book 'the Queen who chose to serve' and year 2 learned lots about the Queen. Next the class learned that the Queen is a strong Christian and has spoken about her faith guiding her and showing her the right thing to do. Mr Bower then talked to the children about examples where the Queen had trusted in God when choosing what she should do. Finally the children learned about how Jesus was a leader and how he looked after his people.
All the children found this workshop really interesting. Thank you to Mr Bower for coming in to work with us!
