Topic Lesson 1 - Royal Tea Party
In school, we will be having a Royal Tea Party with a zoom call from the Queen. Put on your best clothes, grab a cup of tea and a cake and find out as much as you can about Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Why not set up a tea party at your table and and use your toys as guests?
