A huge thank you to all the children, parents and family members who came to our Harvest Festival and who contributed donations towards the Rutland Foodbank.
I am constantly amazed by the generosity of our school community and this year's Harvest Collection has not disappointed. At least 147 (at the last count) items have been donated to the Rutland Foodbank. This has been weighed on delivery and we have contributed an enormous 70kg of goods to the Foodbank. Thank you.
The Harvest Festival itself was a fantastic first shared assembly with visitors. It is never easy for the youngest and newest members of the school community to stand up for the first time in front of an audience, but we were very proud of Class 1 as they shared what they had been learning in RE about Harvest. Their singing was great too! Class 2 shared some beautiful paintings of Harvest as well as some of the acrostic poems they had written about Harvest, whilst Class 3 shared what they had learned about Harvest in different countries and how it is celebrated.
It was a marvellous way for us to celebrate Harvest, say thank you to God and to the farmers and to share our learning.
