Harvest Festival 2017

The generosity of parents, carers and family members was most appreciated. The items will be donated to the local Trussell Trust food bank and so benefit families in times of need. Thank you.
I am sure that you will agree the children delivered their songs, stories, information and prayers very well indeed.
Year 6 pupils read a prayer and then explained to us what harvest means. They read clearly and informatively. It was great to see how confident they were reading to so many people in our school hall.
I think that we all enjoyed Oak Class alternative version of ‘The little red hen, the muddy pig and the fruit kebab’. They remembered their story so well and the actions enhanced their performance. 
The whole school sang the song ‘conkers’ with enthusiasm, it has certainly been a great favourite during this half term.
The poems written and performed by Sycamore Class were very good, several budding poets in the making I think!
Beech Class sang three songs and performed actions to go with them. I think that they did very well considering that they are our youngest children.
The school council performed ‘HARVEST’, a poem looking at different aspects of harvest. 
Supernova children brought the celebration to a close with some thoughtful prayers.
We hope that you enjoyed the Harvest festival as much as we did. Once again, thank you for all the wonderful produce. It was great to see so many family members there, thank you so much for supporting your children and the school it is appreciated.
Finally, a big thank you to all the children for making the celebration go so well.
