Harvest celebrations - a word from Mrs Pinhey

Harvest celebrations - a word from Mrs Pinhey

All pupils were involved in harvest celebrations shortly before half-term. The EYFS children entertained their parents in the hall with some wonderful singing and Reception shared their impressions of pumpkin picking at Garson Farm, accompanied by a lovely video which Mrs Mossop created.

KS1 and KS2 held harvest services at All Saints Church. The choirs contributed to the music in the services, adding greatly to the atmosphere created. Years 5 and 6 did a presentation about food waste which, together with the KS2 song ‘In the Bin – 7 Million Tonnes’ gave us all food for thought. In conjunction with the School Council and the new Food Committee, Courtney is going to introduce food waste buckets next term in house colours to measure the waste created at lunchtime by each of the four houses - Arbrook, Fairmile, Ditton and Littleworth, which will help pupils to focus on taking the right amount of food for their appetites and trying to reduce waste. Including this as part of the house competition will hopefully provide an incentive!

We are very grateful to all parents for responding so generously to our charity collection at the end of each harvest event and £351 was collected which will help us to continue to sponsor the education of two children in India through the Rhema Partnership. We recently received a letter from Deepa, the girl we sponsor and a representative from Rhema is coming into school this month to update KS2 pupils on the work of the charity.
