The Queens Memorial Tea

This week the Grasshopppers re-enacted the Paddington and Queen tea party in honor of Queen Elizabeth.

The children used the laptops to watch the short video of the original tea party.

The Grasshoppers independently prepared the sandwiches using Paddingtons favourite of marmalade and the Queens favourtie of Jam.

The children carefully used knifes to apply the various spreads on to the bread and decided to cut the sandwiches into triangles.

We used our very special China tea set and the children understood the risks and reminded each other to be careful.

The Grasshoppers also carefully poured their drinks from a teapot and said cheers as they drank from the tea cups.

Afterwards the children used the laptops to research images of the Queen and Paddington and then drew pictures of them.
