We are calling out to anyone who has photographs or any memories or memorabilia around the 1950s and the Queen’s Jubilee in particular, that they would like to share with the children on these pages.
For example Mary Rollison (aged 91) pictured here on the far right, remembers her mother insisting on putting lots of bunting outside the house and celebrating the coronation in style. They were all dressed up in their Sunday best for this picture. Mary had younger sisters and brothers who could not have a street party as Corporation Road had trolley buses at the time, (like trams but they ran on electric cables overhead). It was a very busy road with Charnos at the top where her Dad and older brother worked. But the family still brightened up the place with the flags and bunting!
If you have anything you would like to share with the children from the era we would love to hear from you and add them to our pages.

I am ecstatic to announce that a member of Chestnut class has ran a marathon in 25 days. Seb set himself a challenge at the beginning of January to run a 20 miles, but has exceeded his challenge and has managed to run a marathon, which is 26.2 miles, in 25 days. He smashed his first challenge, and has set himself another challenge – 50k in February. He said “I am so pleased I went beyond my original target of 20 miles and managed a marathon. I am now ready for my next challenge.” A huge well done from all of Chestnut class, and best of luck with your next challenge! 😄💪
If you have taken up a new hobby during lockdown, post a picture to seesaw and let your teacher know so they can celebrate your big wins! 😁👏
