Event - Harvest Festival and Goodbye Mr Wilson

21 October 2016

On Friday 21st October family and friends joined with us to celebrate our Harvest Service. The children brought along harvest gifts which were collected and donated to help support a local food bank.

During the service Mr Wilson talked about hunger and we spent some time thinking about those people who don’t have enough to eat.

Each class took part in performing poetry, stories and music which helped us think about what harvest means to us all. As it was Mr Wilson’s last day at school (after being Headteacher for seven years) some of the songs and stories were specially adapted to include Mr Wilson.

Class 4 wrote a poem called ‘Ten things found in Mr Wilson’s pocket’ and also composed a fitting acrostic poem to celebrate all Mr Wilson qualities.

The school community then gathered back at school for tea and cake and to say a very fond farewell to Mr Wilson. It was a lovely afternoon which we all will remember.

The choir performed ‘Time to say Goodbye’.
Class 1 sang ‘Chugging along in a big red tractor'.
