Food and farming

This week we have continued finding out about harvest and have been thinking about food and where it comes from. We looked at farm animals and found out what food comes from them. We had some interesting ideas!

We found out about the Jewish harvest festival of Sukkot. We made our own Sukkah - an outdoor shelter where Jewish people sit and share meals with their family. They decorate these with fruits and vegetables and we made our own collage fruits/vegetables. The children enjoyed role playing in the Sukkah.

We are making our own big tractor to play in. That will explain why lots of the children came home with red hair/clothes on Friday! Sorry! The children had so much fun!

We have set up our own farm shop selling local produce. The children have enjoyed taking on the roles of shop keeper and customers.

We used junk materials to make our own tractors.

Read Write Inc is going really well. The children are so engaged!
