Art Gallery - The Queen's Headscarves

Year 5 - The Queen’s Headscarves

Our Queen is often seen wearing a headscarf and these headscarves come in a variety of different designs.  Sometimes, these designs are more formal ones relating to certain countries; sometimes, they are more informal with corgis and horses on. 

Year 5 looked at some of these headscarves and then discussed and investigated possible designs for their own headscarf design.  We looked at some Commonwealth countries and their symbols, such as Australia, Ghana, Jamaica, Canada and India.  We also noticed that when the Queen and royal family visit a country, they often have their outfits designed to match the symbols and colours of that country.


They also looked at the personal interests of the Queen and the symbols, which might be of interest to her, such as her favourite flower (Lily of the Valley), favourite animals (corgis and horses) and favourite places (London and Balmoral).

Then, Year 5 designed their own headscarf with paper and pencils.  After that, they transferred their designs onto fabric using fabric pens.

The final designs look bright and colourful and we’re sure the Queen would approve of their designs!
