Harvest Festival is a celebration enjoyed by many people worldwide and is also a special day for people of the Christian Faith. It is a time for Christians to be thankful and to thank nature for the foods it produces and one another for the love they share with us. This lesson plan will help children understand what being thankful looks like and how we can show this.  

No harvest is complete without signing Harvest Songs. The Harvest Samba is a big favourite of the Muddy Puddle Teachers! 

There are plenty of opportunities for PSED and team collaboration in this lesson plan. Our KS1 Religious Education resources use active methods, so do not worry that your class won’t be engaged. They will! With our Muddy ways, they always are. Look out for options as to whether you can do it in big indoor spaces or whether it’s better taught outdoors. Remember, you need a silver account to gain access to resources and train with us; go for Gold
