Grandad Joe shares his royal memories
06 May 2016
In History, girls in Year 2 learn about famous people and events. Recently they have been learning about the Queen’s coronation following on from Her Majesty’s special birthday.
Grandad Joe, grandfather to Alice and Evie in Prep, paid us a visit to tell us his own memories of the Coronation Day in June 1953. We loved hearing about the street parties, the food and music and about how he spent the day dressed up as one of the Royal guards!
Grandad Joe also told us about his school experiences. It was clearly very different to today! The girls asked lots of questions and were very interested in his childhood up in Yorkshire.
