This week in Cambridgeshire:

Week beginning 19th September 2022 


This week in Year 6, we took time to commemorate and remember the life of Queen Elizabeth II. We watched a brilliant video in which the Queen had afternoon tea with Paddington Bear at Buckingham Palace and thought about the values that the Queen represents. In the clip, Paddington signs off by saying ‘Thank you Ma’am’ so we built on that to express our thanks for Her Majesty. We all wrote a note of thanks addressed to the Queen on the back of a marmalade sandwich which will be displayed in the school.
