Harvest Festival

Harvest Festival 2016

On Friday 30th September pupils, staff and parents celebrated Harvest Festival. Foundation Stage & Key Stage 1 pupils celebrated with a service in the school hall at 1.30pm. Key Stage 2 pupils, staff and parents walked through the village to take part in a service at 2.15pm at St Mary's Church led by Headteacher Zara d'Archambaud and Vicar Emma Pennington.

The centrepiece of this year's festival was the wonderful Harvest Loaf made from wheat grown by our Year 2 pupils (with the help of botanist Dr Sarah Bearchell). Once grown the pupils also harvested and threshed the wheat and then using the flour as a class group baked the loaf. 

The loaf was presented to Reverend Pennington by Year 2 representatives and placed on the altar.
