We've had a fabulous time celebrating Harvest at St Michael's today. The aim of the day was for the children to understand the importance of Harvest Festival in the Christian calendar. Although we can get most foods at any time of the year, this was not always the case. We now focus on Harvest Festival to think about the food we have and feel grateful, whilst thinking of those less fortunate. In a world that is unfair, what can we do to redress that balance?
All the activities children took part in today were linked to Harvest, we thoughts about Harvest traditions and made Lammas Bread and decorative wreaths, thought about what we are grateful for as well as thinking about ways to make a difference in the world. How can we make the world a fairer place through our actions? We thought about our hopes for the future and shared our thoughts and feelings in our Harvest celebration.
As well as collecting food for the Trussell Trust foodbank, all the classes organised a fund raising event to raise money also plus the 'Silly Squash' competition which had some amazing entries. Thank you to everyone who took part and made it such a successful day!
