A Royal thank you for Little Gems children

Date: 03 Oct 2016

Children at Bright Horizons Little Gems Nursery and Preschool in Irthlingborough, Northamptonshire 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 loved seeing the picture of the Queen on the card that was sent back to them,” said Nursery Manager Sharon Hales. “They were so excited to hear back from the palace and it’s really boosted their confidence and enthusiasm for writing. They also loved learning more about the Royal Family.”

The letter writing exercise was part of Bright Horizons Growing Writers programme, which looks to support children’s magical journey to becoming confident writers.
