We were utterly delighted to receive a very special looking envelope recently. What was inside the envelope was pretty special too!

Her Majesty the Queen
Dear Your Majesty the Queen,
We are writing to you to say congratulations on your 90th birthday and we hope you had a very happy day. We are the children in Year 2 at Stapleford Primary School, Cambridgeshire. Have you ever been to Cambridgeshire?
Whilst you may have been celebrating your birthday by having a grand feast, we were on a school trip at the Botanic Gardens in Cambridge. When we were at the gardens, we went in the rainforest greenhouse and we learnt about a variety of plants including monkey cups, cacti and a banana tree. Most of us liked the monkey cups the best because the name was funny! Our class went on two trains that were as fast as lightning but we did face some trouble with our journey as the trains were delayed!
Our class respect you and everything you have done for the country a lot. What a great Queen you have been! We cannot believe that you have been Queen for almost 63 years. We are interested to know what it is like to be the Queen. How exciting it must be to have a throne!
We hope you had an extremely exciting birthday and we wish you many happy returns. Our teacher, Miss Cooper, told us that when she was younger she wrote to you and she received a reply. We would be most grateful if you wrote back.
In Science we have been learning about materials. We had a visit from Henrietta the hen who asked us to help find the best material for her eggs. Because of this, we investigated which material would offer the best protection against a fall.
Here is some of our work:
I think the hessian will be the best material because it is soft and the eggs will be nowhere near breaking.
Person to drop the eggs
First we laid some trays out.
Next we wrapped the eggs up.
After that we dropped them from a metre.
Then we went to check them.
How did we keep our experiment fair?
We dropped the eggs at the same height. We didn’t throw them.
We found out that the bubble wrap was the best material.
In English today, we have written poetry about our houses.
We were learning how to use noun phrases, adverbs AND commas in a list!
Here is some of our work...
I like to taste lovely macaroni cheese.
I like to hear the twittering songs of an Autumn bird when I wake up.
I like to touch my Mummy’s fluffy cardigan while I hug her peacefully.
I feel my soft, fluffy, pink blanket.
