This morning we held our Harvest Assembly for Year 1 and Year 2. The front of the stage soon filled with a wonderful selection of tins, packets, fruit, vegetables and some delicious looking cakes!
Year 1 and 2 told us about the meaning of Harvest and how important water is.
Mrs MacLauchlan reminded us of how lucky we are that we can get fresh drinking water from our taps. In some countries there is a shortage of water and in a lot of countries the water is not clean enough to drink. Sister Rose has warned Mrs MacLauchlan and Mrs Leeson that they might not be able to have a shower every day when they are visiting India because the water regularly runs out and they often have power cuts so there is no electricity to heat the water.
Year 2 performed a play about the Enormous Turnip and we also sang some Harvest Songs.
During the afternoon there was a Harvest Sale and the raffle was drawn. A big thank you to everyone who has supported the Harvest. All the money raised will be presented to Westfield Branch of Age Concern and will be used to provide them with a very special Christmas lunch. The total raised today was £295.64! Another great Westfield effort.
The Reception classes had a special Harvest Curriculum morning which was a great opportunity for parents/carers to see the children at work in their classrooms. Look out for photographs of this event.
