Wedding Role Play was spread over 2 weeks- Wk 1 we made preparations- brainstormed own experiences of weddings, watched a video clip and used emerging literacy skills to write wedding invitations and to design skills to make a wedding cake from polystyrene. Wk 2 was the wedding- roles were assigned and everyone dressed up. We had the bride's bouquet, posies for the flower girls and buttonholes for the rest. We made an altar with a cardboard cross and 1 boy was the priest. We had the appropriate music for the church and threw real confetti when the happy couple were married (with gold pipe cleaner rings)

To finish, the boys made an impromptu band and we played some current songs for everyone to dance to. Best wedding I have been to in a long time!
