Harvest Festival

Harvest Festival  We will be taking the children to church next on Friday 20th October to celebrate Harvest Festival. Years 1 to 6 will be joining in - it’s a great opportunity for (almost) all of the children to celebrate together. 

The children will walk to the church in pairs of  classes. For example, Year 6s will walk with Year 1 children. We find that pairing older children with younger children helps to build relationships within school and gives the older children a sense of  responsibility. 

The children loved it last year so we’re repeating this year. Each pair of year groups will be escorted by the groups’ adults. The church visit will take place within the normal school day. We would welcome any donations of non-perishable food items which our School Councillors will be taking to Washington Food-bank. 

Our next church visits will be at Christmas (15th December) when Key Stage 2 children will visit either at 10:00 or 2:00 so that we can welcome parents to join us. We will let you know your child’s time soon.
