To mourn the loss, but celebrate the life, of our beloved late Queen Elizabeth II, Year 6 spent some time looking at her life and her incredible reign that has come to an end. We discussed what we can learn from her Christian faith and example of Servant Leadership. How we can use the strength she found in her faith to inspire us to do the same.
Queen Elizabeth was very open about how her faith had helped her through the toughest moments of her reign and we read some of the poignant quotes she had said over the years including:
We also read some poetry about the Queen:
We couldn’t celebrate the Queen without watching some key moments in the most recent years of her reign: Skydiving into the London 2012 Summer Olympics with James Bond and sharing a cup of tea with Paddington Bear.
We then gave Year 6 some time to create a tribute to the Queen in whichever way they felt they wanted to. Some wrote poems, some wrote prayers and some drew portraits. Please find a small selection of work below.
Book of condolences for the St. James’ community – there will be a book of condolences for parents and any members of our school community to sign in the entrance area. We will send this to Buckingham Palace at the time of the funeral to express our condolences as a community. Please do add your messages to the Royal Family.
‘Now let your servant depart in peace.’ Luke 2:29
Thank you for everything, Ma’am
