All the children had important roles to play in The Early Years’ Harvest Festival on Friday. The Reception classes, dressed in wonderful costumes, sang songs about cauliflowers, cabbages and beans and other Harvest foods and acted out two stories, the ‘Story of the Enormous Turnip’ and one about a little seed.
Then the little ones from Nursery, wearing their class coloured t-shirts, sang about autumn leaves. Reverend Schunemann from St. Stevens completed our Harvest with a talk, echoing our value about ‘Love’ and a gentle prayer to say thank you.
Our hall was packed and there were not many dry eyes. We were lucky to have some special guests of honour from Balmoral House who enjoyed watching the children perform. Our thanks go to all the parents who so generously contributed food for our Harvest and which will be distributed to the residents of Balmoral House this week.
