H is for the Harvest.
Farmers work hard, hour by hour,to cut and store the golden grain that's then made into flour.
A is for apples, pears and plums, all hanging from the tree.They're fresh and sweet and juicy - a treat for you and me.
R is for red and yellow, orange, gold and green,
the trees so full of colour as nature paints the scene.
V is for vegetables, gathered and safely stored away.
Potatoes, carrots, sprouts and peas, so there's some for every day.
E is for the earth, providing all our food,
with sun and rain to make things grow to give us all that's good.
S is for seeds, so gently twirling to the ground,
settling deep within the soil where new growth will be found.
T - So it's a big Thank You we must not forget to say.
On Sunday 19th October, 16 members of the Junior Choir came along to the St John and St James' Harvest Celebration Service.
They took part in singing, a Harvest poem and leading a Harvest prayer. Miss Gillespie and all the parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents were so proud of them all! They sounded fabulous :)
On Monday 20th October they shared their lovely Harvest songs with the whole school in a Harvest Celebration Assembly. Many thanks to all the children who brought in food to share with the local community.
We are so thankful for all the lovely food that we get!
We need to remember the farmers, lorry drivers, shop keepers and the cooks who prepare our food for us.
