Today the Juniors went to Mount Charles Methodist Church to celebrate their Harvest Festival.
Pupils were asked to bring in a selection of vegetables or fruit grown by family or friends. From each class 2 pupils were selected, who talked about their produce in the service.
There was a wonderful selection of produce provided for the service, and the children told us some facts about the vegetables such as where it was grown, who it was grown by and in some cases even gave us a recipe for how to cook the vegetables.
The Year 3 children conducted the service, announcing the year groups and the hymns, which all the Juniors joined in with.
This evening the PSA are going to auction off the vegetables and give the money raised to charity. They will be selling soup during the event as well as giving out recipes.
As well as vegetables, some pupils brought in jams and pickles which have been made by relatives and friends.
It was a great service and certainly made my mouth water at the wonderful selection of produce provided. Well done to all the pupils who brought in their produce!
I can barely believe that we are just one week away from it being half term already. Things have been very busy for us this term so far with plenty of trips taking place, such as Year 5’s visit to Heligan Gardens and the Reception classes’ visits to the woods. Our Year 6 pupils enjoyed a day out at Poltair and a morning at Penrice to have a taste of what the secondary schools will offer – they came back very excited about the activities on offer.
The sports teams have made a good start to the year, although sadly a number of fixtures have had to be postponed due to factors beyond our control – we hope that the weather stays as nice as it has been to let us play these later in the term.
In school, the pupils have been getting fully involved in their work, with lots of new Literacy topics and plenty of other learning going on.
Today the Infants enjoyed their Harvest Service in school and the Juniors are getting ready for their service next week, along with the PSA Harvest Auction and Year 4’s going to the Tri-Golf Festival.
Come back soon for a report on The Big Draw, which takes place on Tuesday 19 October between 3:00pm and 4:00pm in the Main Hall – come along with your family – it’s free and promises to be a lot of fun!
