23rd November 15
On Friday November 20th, we celebrated our second HARVEST FESTIVAL in Infant Education. This festival is celebrated to gather and acknowledge the abundance of the autumn harvest in Anglo-Saxon countries.
Students have been involved in doing various different workshops and activities which their teachers had prepared for them in classrooms and other areas in the infant zone: they made and tried orange juice and salads from fruit which is typical of this season of the year; they sang autumn songs; they made and coloured murals of the animals and plants in the forest. they touched and handled dried fruits and nuts; they made a scarecrow; they enjoyed a picnic together; etc.
With all of this, we propose that through play and developing relationships with peers and teachers, students learn about customs, as well as vocabulary and how to play common games in these countries; Above all, they learn to value and appreciate the food they receive each day.
They had a fantastic morning!
