Pupils get letters from Clarence House after writing to William and Kate
Every child in the Year 1 class at Deeping St James Primary School had a treat on Monday when they opened individual letters from Clarence House.
The class of 30 youngsters has been studying the Royals and as part of English learning, they read a story called ‘Shhh! Don’t wake the Royal Baby’ by Martha Mumford.
The children in Year 1 wrote individual letters to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with top tips for getting Prince George to sleep. Ideas included; singing him a lullaby, reading him a story or rocking him to sleep. The children also asked general questions to William and Kate and some asked about the Royal baby on the way.
The children walked to village post office in Deeping St James to post the letters and on Friday, the school was stunned to receive a package from Clarence House with individual letters.
The letters stated that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thought the children had “some excellent ideas on how to get a baby to sleep” and were “delighted to receive some lovely drawings”. It added that they were touched the children had taken the time to write.
