To celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee we will holding a special celebration day on Friday 10th June. We are calling the day, ‘What the Queen has seen’ as we dress up as famous figures from the different decades that the Queen has been on the throne. We would like every child to prepare some information about their decade that they can share out loud with the rest of their class. The aim of the day is to give the children an insight into just how long the Queen has ruled for and a sense of chronology around some of the events that have taken place in living memory.
If you are struggling for ideas with what to wear then please use the links below. Your child can come as ‘a person’ from their given decade if you are finding a historical figure difficult; they can wear clothes that look like they would have been worn during their decade and their presentation can be about the decade in general. Perhaps you could draw some inspiration from the Royal Pageant buses that were themed on each decade?
Authors and musicians are a great place to start along with world leaders, actors and sports stars. Will the Beatles reform?
