During the Summer term in their English lessons Year 7 students at Greenfield Community College, Aycliffe Campus, have been reading a play called ‘Two Weeks with the Queen’, by an Australian author, Morris Gleitzman. The play tells the story of a boy named Colin Mudford who is sent to live in England while his brother is being treated for cancer.

Inspired by the play, Mrs Robson’s year 7 English class decided to find out more information about our monarchy and the common wealth. As part of their research they decided to write letters to The Queen, asking a number of questions about her life, work and pets!

The class and Mrs Robson were thrilled when on Wednesday 8th June 2015 they received a letter from the Palace, along with information about the Queen’s life and work. Each member of the class got a copy of the letter to take home as a keepsake.
