This week in RE we learnt about the Harvest Festival. We found out about the history and importance of the celebration among religious communities. We learnt that Harvest Festival is a celebration of the harvest and food grown on the land. It is about giving thanks for food as well as for all the good and positive things in our lives such as family and friendships. We had a class discussion about things that we are grateful for and there were some lovely responses such as being thankful for our home, our family and our food.
We then made class wreaths, writing down the things we are thankful for on leaves and acorns. There were plenty of amazing ideas which you can see below!
