Harvest Festival 2017

Willows Class singing Big Red Combine Harvester with all the actions included.


Oaks Class Singing A Harvest Hymn.

We also enjoyed Oaks Class reading their Autumn Poems written as part of their Outdoor learning, between the whole school performing two further harvest songs.

We were also delighted to have the children and staff from Stepping Stones also come and sing the Scarecrow song.
Woodton Church made us feel very welcome and, much to the delight of the children, provided us with drinks and biscuits afterwards.

Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to the Harvest Festival and who provided a wonderful box of food for the local food bank.
