A huge thank you to all of the parents, grandparents and friends of the school who were able to join us in Friday afternoon in the school hall for our Harvest Festival Celebration.
The Thanksgiving assembly started with our newly formed choir singing 'O Re Mi', a Nigerian High-life Welcome Song, unaccompanied and in two parts - particularly impressive after only a few rehearsals!
What followed was then alternate hymns for everyone to join in with, and presentations by each class. Aqua class shared the story of the Little Red Hen which they had been learning in their music lessons. There were few nerves from our youngest children, and they all joined in lustily with keeping the pulse and sharing some actions. Teal class shared their own special version of George Ezra's 'shotgun' - which had been altered to represent farming. There were great actions and enthusiastic singing of 'I'll be driving tractors....'! Finally Cobalt Class shared verses from Harvest poems they had written, with some beautiful imagery.
The assembly concluded with a rousing rendition of 'Everywhere around me', before FOEGS held their Harvest raffle.
