May Day Celebrations

Each year, before the May Day bank holiday weekend, we hold our traditional May Day celebration.  This year it was held on Thursday 2nd May at 2:00 pm. This consists of a May Day Procession led by the May Queen, the Green Man, his Page and two children from each class. The May Queen, Green Man and attendants are chosen from Year 2 children. 


This year the May Queen is Grace, the Green Man is Reuben and his Page is Miley.  Once the procession has circled the playground, the Green Man crowns the May Queen with a circlet of flowers. As three cheers ring out for the Queen she takes her place on the dais with her attendants.


The children then provide entertainment for the May Queen. This takes the form of Country Dancing from Early Years and Year 1 and Maypole Dancing by Year 2. The Maypole dances are: Barbers Pole, Sixes and Gypsies Tent (also known as Spiders Web).


After the dancing the whole school joins hands in concentric circles and sings a May Day song. The children then return to their classes. The May Queen and attendants then process back into school.
