May Day Celebrations

23rd May 2019

On the same day as the hedgehog spiky hair day, we celebrated May Day with the crowning of the May King and May Queen and traditional maypole dancing. Since we reinstated this old Barrington tradition a few years ago, it has become a popular day in the school calendar. It is a lovely way to mark the end of the first half of the summer term and celebrate that all the national assessment test are finished. The May King and Queen are always Year Six pupils and they are elected by the rest of the pupils and adults in the school. Every member of the school gets a vote, so it is a real compliment to the Year Six pupils who are elected to this role.
