Lego Design Team


Have you ever been to Legoland and wondered who designs and makes all of the amazing Lego creations?  

Well, that’s exactly what the children at The Queen Anne wondered- so we decided to ask the experts!

On Friday,  we welcomed Giorgio and Oscar from the Lego Design team to The Queen Anne.

The children found out about the whole design process and what’s involved in the construction of the models.

Giorgio and Oscar said that they need to use their listening, thinking, reading, writing, maths and art skills every day. They said that being able to work as part of a team was essential as they often work on projects with teams all around the world.

As you can imagine, the children had lots of questions. The children are very excited about the thought of spotting one of models built by Giorgio and Oscar the next time that they visit Legoland.

Huge thanks go to Giorgio and Oscar for giving us a glimpse into the life of a Lego Designer and inspiring us to become designers too!

In honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Dear Parents,

In honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

The Queen’s passing marks an important event in history and has special significance for the people of Windsor.

Thank you to all parents who were able to stay for our short service on Friday to give thanks for the life of Queen Elizabeth. It marked the start of the national period of mourning and allowed our school family to spend a few moments giving thanks and praying together.

This week, the children have spent some time reflecting on the life of Queen Elizabeth and thinking of the future with King Charles III.

The Queen was firmly of the belief that she had to be seen to be believed and wore brightly coloured clothes and hats to make sure that she stood out of the crowd. In memory of The Queen, each child has planted a colourful spring bulb in the growing bed next to The Quiet Area to represent The Queen’s hats. As each flower unfurls, it will remind us all of Queen Elizabeth.

This week, each class will make their own memorial card which will be placed at Cambridge Gate by a representative from each class. We believe that the cards and messages left at the gate will become part of a national collection of remembrance.

All children are taking part in Radio Berkshire’s special project to honour The Queen. Children across the county have been asked to draw and write any pictures or messages they wish to share with the Royal Family in memory of the Queen.  These messages and pictures will be drawn on purple hearts which will be collected up and displayed in Windsor next week so that people can appreciate the heartfelt thanks and gratitude of the Berkshire school children.

The school will be closed on Monday 19th September to enable the whole school community to pay their respects to The Queen.

Kind regards,

Mrs Street
