Rose Queen

2017 - 2018

Update July 2018

Well what a wonderful time we all had at the summer fair a couple of weeks ago! We're sure you'll all agree, both our retiring Rose Queen and new Rose Queen, their attendants and the rose-buds and pageboys looked amazing. As always the church ceremony was very touching and a tradition that we all here at Woodcocks' Well look forward to each year. A huge thank you to Mrs Rowley for making the church look so beautiful and working with the young boys and girls to make the day so special for them. 

A huge thank you must firstly be said to Emilia for doing such a fantastic job as Rose Queen this year. She has organised so many fabulous events for the children at school and raised such a lot of money for our church and school! 

We're equally as excited to see our new Rose Queen - Daisy - step into her role too. She was voted in by a panel of children this year after sharing her presentation with the rest of the school. We know Daisy has lots of great ideas set for the year and we can't wait to see her rolling these out.

Good luck Daisy we're sure you'll make our school very proud! 

Please take a look at the photos below of our wonderful Rose Queens and their friends.  

Update April 2018

Emilia has continued to work hard in her run up to Easter, selling cakes at the Easter service and running a very successful Easter bonnet competition. 

You can see from the photos below, just how much the children enjoyed making and wearing their bonnets! They even made it in to the Congleton Chronicle! 

February 2018 - TOTAL - £377.72 

Update February 2018 

Well as you can see, Emilia has been working so hard on her Rose-Queen fund. A HUGE well done Emilia, and of course to her attendants, who have been helping as much as they can too! 

Emeilia recently held a 'Uniform Swap' day at school, which entailed just what it says on the tin...teacher's dressed as pupils and pupils came to school dressed in their smartest attire, dressed as teachers! As you can imagine, the children were thrilled at this idea! We had wacky science teachers, crazy maths teachers, sporty PE teachers and even a School of Rock music teacher. The teachers also put in lots of effort and donned their old ties and school shoes for the day! 

Keep a look out in the Congleton Chronicle for some extra special pictures of the children and teachers swapping roles! 

 

October 2017 - TOTAL - £220.00

September 2017 - TOTAL - £68.00

Update October 2017: 

Emilia is certainly work hard as Rose Queen and has already raised lots of money towards her total. Recently, Emilia held a book sale in school, selling used books for 50p each. She and her attendants did a roaring trade, as you can see from her upated total! 

Rose Queen 2017 - 2018 

This year our Rose Queen is Emilia. We think you will agree from the photos below, taken at the Rose-Queen crowning, she certainly looks the part.

Emilia will be raising money for our wonderful school and our church St Lukes. She will of course be supported, as usual by her attendants, who this year are: Neaveh, Sophie, Lauren and Emily.

Emilia hit the ground running in the summer term, organising her first Rose-Queen event; a gardening day. The children were invited to attend in school in their gardening clothes and throughout the day they helped tend to our school grounds, whilst Emilia and her attendants sold flower biscuits they had baked at home.

2016 - 2017 

International Day 

On Friday 16th June, the children at Woodcocks' Well took part in a whole school International Day organised by the Rose-Queen and her attendants. Each class was given a different country and were invited to come into school dressed in those colours or a theme. We had some wonderful French Madam’s and Monsieur’s in Acorns Class, Senors and Senioritis in Willow Class, Maple Class tested out their best American accents and Oak class dug out their flip flops to dress as Australians. Throughout the day the children enjoyed taking part in all sorts of art activities, including: making mosaics, splattering paint across the field in the style of Jackson Pollock and making Aboriginal dot paintings. Lots of children also had their faces painted and nibbling on the cakes made by our rose-queen team.

 

The Copper Challenge 

The Rose Queen and her attendants have recently re-introduced 'The Copper Challenge' to the chidren at Woodcocks' Well. The children have been asked to save their 1p's and 2p's to place in their class container. At the end of each half term, the containers will be emptied, counted and the class who has collected the most will be awarded a very special prize! 

 

During the summer term, the crown is passed from the retiring Rose Queen to our new one in a special ceremony at the annual Summer Fair. Last year our Rose Queen Tainn, supported by her attendants Jessica, Josephine  and Hannah did an amazing job and raised over £1000 for 'Children with Cancer UK'.

This year (2016) our Rose Queen is Lorna, who will be supported by two attendants; Amelia and Isabella. Lorna will be workng hard throughout the year to raise money for Woodcocks' Well and St Lukes Church. 

We wish Lorna and her attendants lots of luck over the year, we can't wait to see what super fundraising ideas she has in stall for us.
