The whole of Pre-Prep from Early Years to Year 2 have been celebrating Harvest Festival. Harvest boxes were brilliantly decorated and generously filled with food ready to give to Salvation Army.
Year 1 and 2 performed poems and songs for their friends and families at St Edmund’s Church, where they were welcomed by Reverend Seabrook. The poems were brought to life through actions and colourful autumnal props. Luckily, there weren’t too many leaves falling inside the church! The poems were recited with such enthusiasm and all of the children did an amazing job.
Lucy M (Year 1) – “I liked sharing my poem with my family and doing the actions.”
Erica F (Year 2) – “I found some real leaves and covered my box with them. I put lots of food in the box.”
Rory S (Year 2) – “I enjoyed singing with the choir and conducting them.”
Our Acorn, Oak and Reception classes enjoyed a special celebration in the Pre-Prep Hall, singing their harvest songs – ‘Thank You, Lord, For This New Day’ and ‘Here’s What We Do At Harvest Time’ – to their families who had came to watch. Reverend Seabrook told us a special story which made us think about what makes us happy and sad. Reception performed the prayers they had written, thanking God for foods such as strawberries, carrots and cucumbers, whilst members of Oak class held up the items.
