Children at Bright Horizons Waterside Day Nursery and Preschool in Reading were thrilled to receive correspondence in return from the Queen, after sending Her Majesty a birthday card.
To celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday, the children wrote and sent a card to Buckingham Palace.
In her official response, the Queen thanked the children for taking the time to write to her.
“The children were thrilled to receive a thank you letter from the Queen,” said Nursery Manager Anna Donegan. “They were so excited to hear back from the palace and it’s really boosted their confidence and enthusiasm for writing. It was also worthwhile for children to learn about the function of the postal service.”
The letter writing exercise was part of Bright Horizons Growing Writers programme, which looks to support children’s magical journey to becoming confident writers.
