CHILDREN at Oak Tree Nursery have been learning about Her Majesty the Queen, who has also helped them with their project. The children, aged between three and four years, have been finding out about the Queen and her family and produced a book containing facts about Queen Elizabeth. As part of their research, they made crowns, produced drawings and paintings of the Queen, as well as talking part in a Royal tea party. The children wanted to share their creativity with the Queen and forwarded on to her a selection of drawings and paintings they had produced. They were delighted to receive a response from her Lady in Waiting who said the Queen was delighted to have received the pictures from the children at Oak Tree Nursery.  To help with their project, staff at Sandringham House forwarded an information sheet, including the Queen’s daily routine, what she likes for breakfast and forthcoming events she will be attending, which the children will now use to further develop their project. Cllr Gary See, Cabinet Member for Children and Family Services, commented “The children have been so enthused to learn all about the Monarchy and were really excited to send her their drawings.  To receive a response from the Queen’s residence is fantastic for everyone who took part and something they didn’t expect.  The children can’t wait to use the information sheets provided to further develop their project.  It’s great that their interest and imagination has been captured in this way.”
