Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Coronation Day at Kirkcolm!


Today, in light of the big event this weekend with the Kings Coronation, we felt it only right to treat pupils a fun day celebrating the upcoming Coronation of King Charles!

The day was jam packed! We began our day by learning about the formed Prince of Wales and his rise to the title of King! We watched an educational video on this and discussed how he was about to take on such a big role at the age of 73 (when most people retire!) Pupils knowledge then got put to the test in a King Charles Quiz where we teamed up the big with the wee. 

Then we had break time and after that we welcome Ansley McClure from Kirkcolm Community Trust into the school to present pupils with little Coronation teddies and mugs to commemorate the event in history! The generosity of the Trust is always welcomed and pupils were extremely grateful for their wee mementos. 

Then we had the nursery join us for some flag designing! Pupils were split into groups ranging from the teeny 2 year olds to the towering 12 year olds with a single objective – create your own red, white and blue flag design! They were given a variety of different materials to use and what huge amounts of creativity that we saw from all the school. Watching them all work together was lovely! Miss Gordon then came through to select the most creative flag and the winners were awarded with some chocolate – ofcourse!

After that we sat down to enjoy our buffet lunch prepared by Michelle and what a spread she put on for us! From goujons to sandwiches and wraps. Pupils were stuffed to the brim but managed to finish off their meal with a lovely chocolate muffin with some very patriotic icing. 

Next on the agenda was making crowns with our nursery cohort, children put their best colouring skills to the test and designed some beautiful crowns which we mounted to their wee heads! Just in time for their end of day song performance… 

A rendition of the Lion King’s ‘I Just Can’t Wait to be King!‘ – keeping in the spirit of things! 

We have had such a fun day today and it has been so fab getting to link up with the boys and girls of the nursery with transition coming up soon! We hope you all enjoy your long weekend and we will see you all fresh faced on Tuesday!
