Pre School Bake Cakes Fit For Royal-Tea


Children in Pre-School and Junior School began their Jubilee celebrations early as they learnt all about London, the Royal Family, and the tradition of Afternoon Tea.  

After discovering all about the Royal traditions of Queen Victoria and her penchant for afternoon tea, the girls had a go at making their own Victoria sponge cake in her honour. Firstly checking they had all the right ingredients, they then carefully followed a simple recipe to create their scrummy cakes, taking extra care when measuring, pouring, and mixing. Once cooled, the cooked cakes were beautifully decorated in red, white, and blue sprinkles making them almost too good to eat! 

The festivities continued throughout the latter half of the week as the children in Reception and Year 1 took part in various jubilee craft activities. Pre-School enjoyed listening to relaxing classical music whilst they crafted paper crowns, complete with sparkling jewels and designed pasta necklaces to wear. Using colourful rice and sand, they created sand art flags in the shape of the Union Jack and made their very own castle.  

After learning about the Queen, the girls listened to the national anthem. They played along with their musical instruments and practiced their marching. The whole school gathered on Friday afternoon for the Jubilee Afternoon Tea, were the girls played lawn games together, enjoyed the musical delights of the College orchestra and tucked into tasty treats provided by our school caterers. A tea-riffic end to the half-term indeed!
