It was lovely to see so many parents and grandparents join us in the school hall for the Junior School Harvest Festival celebration on Tuesday afternoon. The children worked hard to put on a fantastic event, with every child in Junior School taking an active role, through their numerous poems, small playlets and many songs.
Year Six opened the Harvest celebrations with their very tuneful Harvest Song, "Celebrate." Nursery and Reception children delighted the audience with their beautiful singing of "Big Red Combine Harvester". Year One also showed off their singing skills as they sang about a "Little Seed". Year Two and Three, once again, delighted the audience with their confident poetry renditions about the true meaning of Harvest. Year 4 pupils livened up the proceedings with their "Vegetable Rap" and funky moves. The audience were also treated to a beautiful rendition of "Fields of Gold" by the guitar orchestra.
A special thank you must go to Year Five who led the service from start to finish and also delighted everyone with their playlet and beautiful singing and swaying to “Autumn Leaves”. The afternoon finished with a very thoughtful but joyous song "Harvest Harmony".
A huge thank you to the pupils and staff involved and to our very generous families for the donations. Friends of Hill House School spent the morning organising the donations and produced a beautiful display, thank you for your hard work on this.
The Year Six House Captains had the very important job on Wednesday morning of delivering the food to The Trussell Trust Food Bank in Doncaster, whose volunteers spent time explaining the hard work that goes into organising and distributing the food to those in need.
