On Thursday 8th October we held our Harvest Festival activity day in middle phase (years 3 & 4). The children had an opportunity to take part in four different activities. These activities included learning about how harvest is different depending on where you are in the world, creating art using food and baking their own bread (I’m sure they showed you this when they went home last Thursday).
In my class we sketched and then painted a tree scene using vibrant colours like red, orange and yellow to really get a feel for the autumn season. We added some pumpkins and apples to the picture to depict harvest. Children used finger painting to create the leaves of their tree.
