'Let's Create' Platinum Jubilee Project

Building Self-Belief CIO supported Tow Law Millennium Primary School, County Durham, and the wider Community in a range of creative and cultural activities to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June 2022.

Working with artist and designer Tommy Anderson, the children of Tow Law Millennium Primary School’s Year 2 class produced a colourful banner to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The children explored a range of creative art and design activities including photomontage, typography, collage and illustration. The children also took part in drama workshops with Mitch Donaldson and Becky Bartram from the Shoddy Theatre Company. They planned & prepared a play that was performed at the Tow Law Community Centre, on the weekend of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The project was a great opportunity for the children to discover more about the cultural and historical heritage of the United Kingdom, develop exciting new creative skills, and join in with the nation celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. All of the children’s creative work was displayed and performed by them at the Tow Law Community Centre during the weekend of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
