Today, we had a whole school assembly to celebrate Harvest. Mrs Bain explained that Harvest is the celebration of food grown from the land. We talked about why it is important and how we celebrate it.
Mrs Bain demonstrated making a pizza with the children and explored where all the different ingredients came from. We discovered that some foods travel thousands of miles to get to the UK.
Nowadays, most churches have a Harvest Thanksgiving service. They celebrate this day by singing, praying and decorating their churches with baskets of fruit and food. Harvest Festival reminds Christians of all the good things God gives them. This makes them want to share with others who are not so fortunate. In schools and in Churches, people bring food from home to a Harvest Festival Service. a
As a school, we have collected different foods to share with people who may need some help. We would like to say a massive thank you to all who have donated to our Harvest at Oxford Grove. The food will be distributed to those in need.
Once again, thank you for all the help and support from parents.
