We have all been learning about the Creation story. We talked about the wonderful world around us and what we are grateful for. This was then linked to harvest and the crops we eat. A harvest festival will be held in school on 23rd October and we are holding a collection for the Alnwick food bank.
As part of our learning, reception and key stage 1 used fruit and vegetables to print with and then made some out of paper plates. The class also wrote a ‘thankful pumpkin’, writing one thing they were thankful for.
Key stage 2 made their own harvest baskets, explaining why they chose particular fruit and vegetables.
Harvest prayers were written by the whole school to give thanks for everything we have.
Reception harvest prayer
Thank you for the healthy bananas,
Thank you for the orange pumpkins,
Thank you for watermelons,
Thank you for tomatoes.
Reception class all worked together to create a harvest prayer.
We each thought of a line for it.
