Wedding season is upon us and the fever has even spread to pupils of Frodsham Manor House Primary School.

The Year 2 class had the opportunity to don their glad rags for the annual Key Stage One wedding inspired by Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet.

Rev Denise Harding led the pretend ceremony at Frodsham Methodist Church as part of a unit of work on life events such as naming ceremonies, baptism, confirmation, weddings and funerals from Christian, Muslim and Humanist perspectives.

RE co-ordinator and specialist leader in education for RE Naomi Anstice said: “The  class decide on which characters are to get married - This year it was almost a Star Wars theme but in the end they went with the traditional Shakespeare view instead.

“The children design the service, write the vows and learn about the different aspects of a wedding service.”

All Year 2 pupils played a role in the  proceedings, from ushers to photographers, while children from Year 1 and the reception class attended as guests.

The celebrations continued back at the school with a special themed dinner, complete with top table.
