Walpole Cross Keys Primary School

Creative Coronation celebrations at Walpole Cross Keys

Flags, crowns and stamps played a part when children when our school got creative for the Coronation.

All 53 pupils took part in a day of Coronation celebrations, which saw them create Union Flag collages, make their own crowns, and design stamps with a pop art theme.

There was also a special Coronation lunch, for which the children made their own commemorative place mats, as well as a game of ‘Royal Rounders’.

Assistant Headteacher Billy Overton commented: “With Norfolk having quite a tradition of royal links, and Charles III’s love of the environment and countryside, we feel celebrating his Coronation is important.

“The children have an opportunity to be part of a significant date in history – the more they are aware of it, the better they’ll remember it.”

Other West Norfolk Academy Trust schools joined us in celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III.

At St Clement’s High a time capsule was created which included recordings of students talking about their lives to add a personal touch to the historic event.

Smithdon students recreated the King’s official cypher on the school playing field using their uniform to provide the red, white and blue for an image captured by a drone.

Snettisham Primary had a street party and created crowns and pupils at Clenchwarton chose a Commonwealth country to study as part of the celebration - which also included a picnic.

West Lynn children played croquet and staged a royal treasure hunt and street party.
