It was a busy week at Rainbow Hub nursery in the run up to the Coronation. The children were getting ready for a Coronation Celebration Tea Party and spent the week making special gold crowns to wear at the party with lots of red, white and blue flags, banners and balloons.
As they are not able to sing the National Anthem they made their own “sign-a-long” video version of God save the King and there was also sign-a-long workshop at the party on 5th May with everyone being taken through the signs by team member Shelly Cuff.
Parents and grandparents were invited to join in and everyone had great afternoon with lots of fun and a lovely afternoon tea with sandwiches, sausage rolls, crisps and cake.
Olivia Wills from Burscough, whose son Cody attends the nursery, said, “it’s been a lovely afternoon. Cody really enjoyed the sign a long of the National Anthem and dancing along.”
Nursery Manager, Karina Plumb, added, “this celebration has educated the children in something different. They have learnt about the King and really enjoyed getting involved in making crowns which involved lots of paint and sticky things – messy play that they love.”
And it ended with the children, parents, grandparents and staff sending their good wishes to the new King and Queen. The sign-a-long video can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZRnOgfllKU
