More coronation resources are being shared by the Royal Institute of Engineering and Technology:
“Activities to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III in school or at home will be in full swing this spring and summer term! Join in and find tea party ideas to inspire numeracy and design and technology skills with your 4-11 year olds. Why not get your whole school and PTA inspired with these Coronation activities? We have fun activities for KS1 and KS2 mapped to the curricula with lesson plans and presentations alongside the printables, so you’ll have everything you need to hand.” https://education.theiet.org/primary/themed-primary-resources/coronation-resources/?utm_source=TeachPrimary&utm_medium=HTML&utm_campaign=Primary_parents
The resources were developed between the RAF Youth STEM Team and MEI and they would love your learning highlights to be shared with them on social media: @IETeducation
The ideas are for a
- Maths tea party – Try to position the tea party items into a square grid so that each row and column contains one of each item.
- Create a Royal portrait of King Charles III taking into consideration his interest in environmental issues and desire for a greener world. Reused and recycled materials would be ideal for this talk.
- Gingerbread man maths challenge – it’s all about the gingerbread men’s buttons!
- Create a stone garden display in the style of a flag or other item to commemorate the event.
- Cook some Puff pastry pizza swirls for a street party celebration.
- Make a bunting to celebrate the King’s Coronation and decorate your class or use it for a street party.
- KS2 has a Times Table Cake Challenge
- Make a crown with card to craft your very own crown – wear it for the coronation!
- Design a Coronation throne for King Charles III and add modern technologies to make it really useful.
- Design and make a recipe book from everyone’s ideas for party food for a coronation celebration that the children would like to eat.
- Make a clay teacup, paint it like the souvenier ones!
- Design a place setting for a party – maybe a class party or a street party.
As well as More Coronation Resources there are also some Summer STEM resources available that look really exciting and enjoyable:
“This summer season what not come on a journey with us to see where your imagination and creativity can take you? From air-powered cars and rubber band helicopters to bridges that don’t seem to join up. Challenge your students’ STEM skills whilst having fun in the classroom and beyond.”
