Remembering Her Majesty The Queen

St Andrew’s Benn CofE Primary took 8 of their Year 6 children down to London to lay flowers and pray in Green Park where all the flowers were being laid after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. After looking at all the flowers and reading many of the cards, they went to many of the places that would be part of the funeral. They went to Buckingham Palace, outside Westminster Hall, to Westminster Abbey and stood on Tower Bridge to look at the people queuing to see the Queen lying in state.
