For our time travel topic, year one have been researching the traditions of weddings over the decades.
We have researched Queen Elizabeth’s wedding and looked through photographs of the class’ relatives on their wedding day. The children noticed some differences between the photographs and video clips of Queen Elizabeth’s wedding compared to Prince Harry’s wedding that took place last week. The class noticed that photographs from the 1940’s were in black and white and the newlyweds did not smile. We also pretended to have our own wedding and completed a few traditions which still take place today, such as: throwing the bouquet, bridesmaids holding the bride’s train, throwing confetti and listening to organ music.
Thank you for bringing in your photographs the children enjoyed looking through them.
