British Traditions and Heritage

British Traditions and Heritage

We celebrate the role of Britain both historically and in the present. We want pupils to have knowledge of and be proud of their British heritage and the cultural and historical traditions that we are renowned for. This involves celebrating Royal events, Remembrance day, festivals such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter (alongside those from other cultures).

To celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday, children and staff came to school dressed as members of the Royal Family and learned about their heritage.

To celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, we took part in a lunchtime festival of music, dance and games. Parents were invited to join us for a picnic on the field and the sun shone down making it a truly splendid event to bring the school community together.


We were also joined by  “Ukebox Glory”, a local ukulele group, who entertained us with a variety of well known songs and our school morris dancing club provided a wonderful display of bells and handkerchiefs for all to enjoy.
