So, we are at the end of the first half term already – where did that time go?!
This week the school celebrated with their Harvest Festival services. On Wednesday KS2 went to Mount Charles Methodist church – during the service there were poems, songs, a special Viking recipe, story telling and at the end we all joined in with the performance of Harvest Beat, a song that KS2 had been rehearsing with our new music teacher, Miss Sangster.
The next day the Infants had their Harvest Service in the school hall. Again, there was a great selection of poems, songs, art work and performances put together by each class. It was the first time that our new Reception classes joined in an assembly and they did a fantastic job with their song (and even treated us at the end with a performance of The Little Red Hen).
Maybe you could leave a comment below to tell us what your favourite part of the Harvest service was.
Pupils from across the school brought in tins, jars and packet food – a fantastic amount was sitting in the entrance foyer yesterday ready for St Austell Food Bank to come and collect the food. This charity puts the food together into boxes with enough to feed a family in need for 3 days. Thank you to everyone who made a contribution to this charity.
I hope you have a good half term holiday and look forward to seeing you for the second half of this Autumn term – already there are plenty of things to look forward to such as Children in Need, a Year 3 trip to the woods, a new reading challenge and of course all the Christmas fun at the end of the term!
