Royal wedding is on the cards for Romford school

Celebrations for the Royal Wedding are already underway at a Gidea Park school.

Year 3 pupils at Gidea Park College, in Balgoresd Lane, congratulated the royal couple by creating a selection of handmade cards to celebrate the special occasion.

Teacher Judith Holt asked the children to draw a small picture of something that would make the couple happy.

Designs ranged from spectacular wedding dresses and dazzling crowns to patriotic Union Jack flags.

Exceptional work was then recreated in a larger format and combined with a handwritten letter to the couple to create a colourful commemorative booklet.

The class has also made wedding invitations and designed commemorative plates.

The pupils have even practiced their handwriting by copying out the National Anthem!

Miss Holt said: “The whole school has been inspired by the Royal Wedding, but my class as probably done the most! The children had already been learning about the Royal family so were very keen to continue with that theme.”

The cards are part of the schools wider plans to celebrate the wedding, including a celebration day on Thursday April 28.

Infants and pre-schoolers can come dressed as kings and queens, and the junior school in red, white and blue.

There will also be activities held throughout the day and a street party style lunch.
