On Friday 27th May, The Aldgate School held a day of Platinum Jubilee celebrations, with the children taking part in a range of fun jubilee-based activities.

As part of these celebrations, Nivek Amichund (the Historic Royal Palaces Chief Exhibitor) came to speak to the children about the Crown Jewels, a Yeoman Warder from the Tower of London attended their Jubilee picnic and the students were able to see a replica of St. Edward’s Crown close up.

Students also took part in a ‘Headware fit for a Monarch’ competition, which we were delighted to be asked to judge.

Entries were divided into year groups, with a winner and two runners up being selected for every group. We were incredibly impressed by all the headwear and want to congratulate every child on their hard work. It was brilliant to see such creativity and effort shine through all the pieces and as such, it was a very difficult competition to judge!

Many thanks to the Aldgate School for inviting us and we hope all the children had a wonderful day learning about the Queen and the Jubilee.
