Junior Pupil’s Banners

The junior pupils’ banners graced the back of Holy Trinity Church, Takeley as we joined with the rest of Takeley village in presenting a festival of flowers and colour to celebrate the Queen’s official birthday.

The pupils were commended for their originality and everyone seemed delighted with the fun the banners conveyed.

Celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday

What a day!
We celebrated hearing about the Queen’s personal faith expressed through her Christmas messages and prayed for her. We had great fun singing two of her favourite hymns and the National Anthem. Everyone was involved. And then we had tea and cakes!

Letter From The Queen

Before the summer holidays the Juniors sent the Queen a card to wish her well for the Jubilee.  The card featured a photograph of a patriotic plate garden and messages of respect, thanks and encouragement devised by the pupils.

What a delight it was to get a letter back from the palace, describing the junior’s efforts as, “Splendid”.
