On Friday October 14th, we held our annual Harvest Festival celebrations in the hall.
It was a great occasion and all the children participated brilliantly.
The festivities began with the children from Nursery and Reception singing us songs about autumn leaves and combine harvesters including a solo performance from Ruby who is only 4. Year 1 continued with a dramatic retelling of The Little Red Hen, followed by the Year 2 children sharing their research about farm animals. As ever we included whole phase singing and sang the Harvest Samba and Cauliflowers Fluffy.
The fun continued with KS2 taking to the stage. We heard all about where our food comes from, including a wonderful potato song from year 3 and we learnt about the history of harvest from Year 4. Year 5 shared harvest poems and we found out what harvest meant to some of the children in Year 6. Again the children sang with gusto, joining in with the harvest samba and cauliflowers fluffy!
Thanks to all of the parents and carers who came.
Thank you as well to everyone who donated food. The collection was enormous and your generosity was amazing. Next week Miss Cartwright and some of the children will be taking the food to the local food bank, to help those less fortunate than us.
