Visit to St John's church
Reception class visited St. John's church to take part in a harvest trail. The children were set a challenge of finding scarecrows and then finding a letter attached to each one, which when put together spelt the word 'Thankful.' Attached to each scarecrow was an explanation of why Christians believe harvest is so important and why it is a special time of the year. After the scarecrow trail, we went inside the church to look at the church colours and sing and dance along to the harvest samba song. The children had great fun!
'We play, we laugh, we learn.'
