Platinum Jubilee celebrations with Monkscroft Care Centre

Year 4 had a zoom session with residents from Monkscroft Care Centre, where they shared their memories of the Queen's Coronation and previous Jubilees.  We were so surprised to learn that not everyone had a television, and that they met in each other's houses to watch it on a 9 inch television!
