Harvest Festival

Thank you to all  Parents/ Carers who attended the Harvest assembly. It was a wonderful showcase of your children's musical talents and a great way to celebrate the hard work done throughout the Harvest season.
Thank you to FOOMA for presenting all the donations so beautifully and to Miss Webster for providing our lovely Harvest loaf. The children have enjoyed sharing it today. All the donations have been kindly bagged by Parents/ Carers. Year 6 have since delivered the bags to the community.

What is a Harvest Festival?

Harvest Festival is a celebration of the food grown on the land.

Thanksgiving ceremonies and celebrations for a successful harvest are both worldwide and very ancient. In Britain, we have given thanks for successful harvests since pagan times. We celebrate this day by singing, praying and decorating our churches with baskets of fruit and food in a festival known as 'Harvest Festival', usually during the month of September.

Harvest Festival reminds Christians of all the good things God gives them. This makes them want to share with others who are not so fortunate. In schools and in Churches, people bring food from home to a Harvest Festival Service. After the service, the food that has been put on display is usually made into parcels and given to people in need.
