Year One welcomed a visitor last week to teach them all about a special festival celebrated in the United States and Canada, Thanksgiving. Mrs Samhakson, mum of Aydin, spent a wonderful afternoon with the children talking through the reasons behind the festival and some of the traditions that surround it. Year one found out all about the pilgrims and how they travelled over from England and also discovered some of the special celebrations, delicious treats and traditions that make Thanksgiving such a important festival. The children then got busy and made their very own special turkey! Thank you Mrs Samhakson for such a fun afternoon and HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of our North American families.
