This week we have learning about weddings. Today we had our very own Swan wedding. We started the week reading the Oxford Reading Tree book ‘The Wedding’ about Wilma who is asked to be a bridesmaid for her aunty Jo. We discussed the different roles that people at a wedding play. Children decided what role they would like to play and then we used the random name selector to pick who played each role.
Today we had a Bride, Groom, Bestman, Bridesmaids, a flower girl, a Ring Bearer, Parents of the Bride and Groom, a celebrant, a photographer, an organist and everyone else were the guests.
Once all the guests were seated we had a procession of the Wedding Party. First down the aisle was the celebrant. Followed by the Mum and Dad of the Groom, the Groom and the Bestman, the Ring Bearer and then the Mother of the bride. After the mother of the bride came the flower girl followed by the Bride and her Father and lastly came the Bridesmaids.
We held a simple service.
Followed by a photo session
Then we had a wedding reception with pretend champagne (apple juice and lemonade) where the bride and groom were toasted.
This was followed by the first dance.
Then the Wedding Party joined in.
Finally everyone joined in the dancing.
Finally the wedding reception was finished off with food and disco dancing!
