Here at Fairmead School, we couldn’t let the half term end without jumping at the chance to throw a garden party in the school grounds to celebrate the historic platinum reign of Queen Elizabeth II. It was also a significant event for lots of our families as it marked the first time we were able to invite families back to celebrate with us since the pandemic.
In the morning pupils were able to take part in a selection of different sports including target practice, football with YTFC, tag rugby and cricket, and at lunchtime, pupils and staff joined together for a fish and chip picnic to really enjoy the sense of British occasion.
After lunch, families, pupils and staff, along with the mayor of Yeovil and governors, joined together to enjoy an afternoon of Punch and Judy, a bouncy castle, face painting, homemade cakes and ice creams, as well as rides in a carriage that pupils had been working on throughout the week as part of a special jubilee art programme in school.
It was wonderful to be able to welcome parents back to school and to see our school community come together and celebrate such a momentous occasion together.
