Dear Parents, Carers and Children,
As you will all be aware, Queen Elizabeth II will be officially celebrating 70 years on the throne in the coming weeks and Olton Primary will be joining in too. To Celebrate, we have a range of activities and events for our school community to mark her extraordinary achievement.
Songs from the Decades
The children in their classes will be learning songs from all the decades associated with Her Majesty’s reign and learning about different decades!
Dress in Red, White & Blue - Friday 27th May 2022
On this day, come to school dressed in a combination of red, white and blue in recognition of our national flag- be as creative as you wish!
Art Portrait Competition
The Queen is an avid Art collector and at Olton we are launching our own portrait competition for the children. Design and create a portrait of the Queen using any media (pencils, paint, collage) no larger than A4 which we will then turn into an exhibition. Please make sure that all entries have the artist’s name on the reverse and their class. Entries to be brought into school week beginning 23rd May and no later than Thursday 26th May.
Regal Crown Competition Create a suitably regal crown using upcycled materials. Be as creative as you like. Entries to be brought into school week beginning 23rd May and no later than Thursday 26th May.
Jubilee School Lunch – Friday 27th May 2022
SMBC catering have organised a suitably regal ‘Picnic Style’ school lunch for our children on Friday 27th May 2022. Details for this including the menu will be supplied this week and will suitably fit for a Queen or a King!
Grandparents/Parents - Afternoon Tea Friday 27th May 2022
We would like to invite Parents and Grandparents to an Afternoon Tea with scones and cream on Friday 27th May 1.30pm-2.45pm. This event will need to be prior booked and tickets will cost £1.00 per ticket to include refreshments and the cream too.
In order to help us plan and cater for this event, we are asking parents to book places in advance. Due to the size of our school, we are only able to offer two places per family.
Bookings need to be completed using the link to the online booking form below. Bookings must be made by 9am on Monday 23rd May.
For places booked, there is a £1 charge to cover the cost of the cream tea and this charge will be added to ParentPay. Payment will need to have been made by 3pm on Wednesday 25th May to enable us to order the items for the cream tea in readiness for Friday afternoon.
We are looking forward to all of the celebrations next week and hope that many of you will be able to join us for the cream tea on Friday afternoon.
We are hoping for plenty of sunshine and weather dependent may use the playground or field or the hall if rainy. Do bring a blanket!
Best wishes, Mr Chamberlain, Mrs Gray and the Team at Olton
