3 Ideas on how to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday in your classroom.

Celebration, Cross Curricular Activities


In the teaching Facebook groups over the last week, there has been a question being asked over and over. This question is how are you celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday in your classroom? I thought perfect idea for a blog post, so I thought I would share with you a selection of ideas that I may use in my own classroom to commemorate this marvellous event which is officially celebrated in May/June.

1.90 number facts about 90. You could ask the children to tell you 90 different ways they can make the number 90. It is not as straightforward as it looks and the possibilities are endless I struggled to get 90 different facts about 90. I will do a blog post with some ideas sometime in May/June for you to compare.

2.Time travel with the Queen. This one is probably one of my more creative ideas. You could into a time machine and you could travel through time and investigate the different events the Queen has lived through. She has lived through a lot from world wars to numerous Prime Ministers. Her first Prime Minister was Winston Churchill. She has even lived through two Coalition Governments.

3. Draw My Life – The Queen Edition. You could ask the students to choose different images of the Queen from different times of her life. You could ask them to draw their own version of that picture. Then, you could take photos of these picture and create a Draw my Life video but for the Queen in iMovie using iPads.

What are you planning to do to celebrate this event? Let me know in the comments below or even show me on social media. I would love to see what you do. My handle for all my social media is @happyeducators
