Project

How Do We Celebrate?

Reception

Children investigated the different ways our families, communities and cultures celebrate at this time of year.

In this project, children shared the celebrations that are significant to them and learnt about celebrations from different communities and cultures. They learnt the story of Rama & Sita, demonstrating their understanding by exploring and retelling the story through play. The project included a visit to a local Church, as well as visits from community members who shared how their families celebrate special religious or cultural events. The project culminated in a performance of the Nativity where the children were involved in the planning and preparations for this whole-school event!
