In 2L we have been learning about the Queen's Coronation. It was a truly magnificent ceremony. We watched the long ceremony and acted parts of it out.
When did Queen Elizabeth's father die?
Queen Elizabeth's father, King George VI, died in 1952 when Elizabeth was just 25 years old. Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation took place in 1953 at Westminster Abbey in London.
During the ceremony there are lots of special objects that are used;
The Orb - This is a gold globe which was made in 1661. It has diamonds, rubies, emeralds,sapphires and pearls all over it.
The Sceptre - This represents the authority of the Queen. It contains the second biggest diamond in the world.
St Edward's Crown - This crown is made from solid gold and was placed on the Queen's head during the Coronation.
Can you draw these objects and bring them into school?
The Queen celebrated her Golden Jubilee – 50 years since her accession to the throne – in 2002.
After we acted out the Coronation we made some crowns like St. Edwards crown. We even created some instructions to tell Miss Hardy how to make a sparkly, shimmering crown.
Below you can see how hard we worked to create our crowns.
Look at some of the Kings and Queens in 2L. We had fun wearing our crowns and robes.
