Our EYFS Monty ‘Royal’ Wedding!

The children in Reception had an absolutely wonderful ‘Royal’ Wedding – the Monty way!

After weeks of preparing – making button holes, hair garlands, writing Love poems, making a wedding cake and designing our own mood boards for a wedding, the day had finally arrived…Monty’s own wedding!

We all arrived at school dressed as the guests and walked to St. Thomas Methodist Church, where the Minister, Julian Albrow, conducted a brilliant service. The children took part as guests and some starred as the Bride, Groom, Best Man, Bridesmaids and Page Boys!

We were talked though what happens in a Christian marriage ceremony, followed our Order of Service and sung ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ before leaving the church (accompanied by the pianist playing the traditional wedding march).

When we returned to school the children had a wedding reception and danced to the songs and played video clips of a real wedding band, before cutting the cake!

What a truly fantastic day. We are so proud of the children; their listening skills were superb and their work that has gone into the wedding has been excellent! Well done!

A special thank you to St Thomas Methodist Church for sharing your Church with us and ‘New Heroes’ Band for the brilliant video clips of the band that we danced along to!
