2022 Queen For a Day Tea Party

Year 1 and 2 children enjoyed treating their special people to a ‘Queen For a Day’ tea party on Wednesday 23rd March.  Family members enjoyed being presented with a crown, and served lovingly decorated cakes and biscuits. The royal visitors were also treated to moving performances by both classes. 

Thank you to everyone who attended, it was lovely to welcome so many of you into school for the afternoon and the children were so thrilled and excited to arrange this for you.
Here are some of the comments from parents following the event: 
  • "Mrs Straker & Miss Penn, thank you both so much for putting together such a lovely tea party for us parents. It was clear you and the little ones went to such a huge effort and it was a really beautiful afternoon and so special to be able to come in and share a school event with you all. Many thanks again.”  
  • "I’m still emotional looking back on my videos of their performances and their beautiful artwork! Thank you for making some lovely memories today. We are really lucky to have you teaching our children, thank you so much for all that you do."
  • "I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the effort and time you all put into the Mother’s Day tea party yesterday! Jack and I had a fabulous time and it was a fantastic opportunity for us to celebrate the wonderful relationships we have with our children.”
  • "After filming their performance (for my own use of course), I can’t watch it without tears, it really felt like a very special moment being able to see them sing like they did and what a fabulous choice of song!”
  • "The children were absolutely thrilled to put on such a party and it meant so much to all of us mums, thank you so so much!  Long Lane is such a fabulous school and KS1 teachers are simply the best!”
