Royal Encounter

On Wednesday 20th November, the Year 5/6 children met Prince Richard (The Duke of Gloucester)! 


We were taking part in the launch of a new competition - A Garden in a wheelbarrow- when the children were surprised by a secret visit of the Prince. The children discussed their wheelbarrows (which they were designing for the launch) with His Grace and he asked them questions about the competition. 


Rutland Radio was at the event and they have publicised the event on their Facebook page and they will be running a piece during this morning’s show! So tune in to hear some of our amazing Year 5/6 talking about the event!
