Today in PSHE we were learning about why we celebrate special events with different foods. As a class we created a list of different special events where we might eat food. We came up with Christmas, Easter, Birthdays and Eid.
We made a mind map together about different foods we eat to celebrate these special events. We discussed why these foods are only eaten at certain times and the children said ‘Well, if you had an Easter egg all the time it wouldn’t be special when you get one at Easter!’ This is exactly right, if we eat all the foods we celebrate special events with then they won’t be as special anymore and we won’t appreciate them. We need to enjoy them when the time to celebrate our special event comes.
