Celebrating generosity, gratitude and kindness
We were very proud of ourselves for working so hard to be ready for Harvest. We enjoyed having the whole Junior School together in Christ Church for our Harvest Festival Service for the first time in a very long time. We were a bit nervous at first but we started to feel better when we heard other girls singing their songs. The Harvest Prayers made us feel very respectful of other people and helped us to think about those who are not as lucky as we are and do not have enough to eat.
It was wonderful to see all our parents in the Senior School Hall watching us in the Harvest Concert and clapping loudly all the way through, which made us feel like they were really listening carefully to everything we were saying and singing. We were all very excited when it was our turn to say our lines and to hold the microphone. It was interesting finding out about other Harvest traditions around the world. We enjoyed the interview about the Trussell Trust and The Parable of the Sower and the Seed was brilliant. We loved listening to Reception singing their song about being Farmers and remembering all their actions. Year 1 tried to Hurry up the Harvest, Year 2 told us all about Conkers and Year 3 sang the Potato Song and the Harvest Tango.
