Royal Wedding Celebrations in Schools this Week

Tuesday 26th April 2011

Prince William and Kate Middleton are tying the knot this Friday April 29th, and newspapers and TV are brimming with articles about the vast preparations in the run up to their marriage. Schools, teachers and pupils are also getting involved by organising their own ways to celebrate the heir to the throne’s nuptials. From enjoying a special wedding breakfast lunch, to creating songs, poems, artwork, and even staging their very own mock wedding ceremonies, the royal wedding excitement is also creating an excellent opportunity for children to learn more about the monarchy.

Using the forthcoming royal wedding to teach children about what the monarchy is, as well as about marriage and families, is an excellent opportunity to capture their interest in the subject. And many schools are using the theme in their specific subject lessons too. For example in a maths class students are making spreadsheets for wedding costs and budgeting, and geography lessons will chart the matrimonial procession through London and the landmarks en route. In English, the pupils will be writing wedding speeches.

Activities and events relating to the royal wedding are taking place in schools all over the country ahead of the couple’s big day.
