We were joined by Reverend Andrew Avery for our Harvest Festival this year. It was an online assembly but also live for 2CF as they hosted the event. We began with the CBeebies Autumn Harvest song and children recalled their time in Reception and sang along.
Mrs Knight talked about our Harvest displays of food donated to Peterborough Foodbank and thanked everyone for their contributions - applause was heard throughout the school!
Reverend Andrew showed us fruits and vegetables harvested from his garden, the shops and from his friend’s garden. There was an apple, a marrow, a squash, a banana, a tomato, a kiwi and an avocado. We learnt about these and appreciated where they came from: a marrow is just a courgette allowed to grow! We celebrated God’s harvest and thought about those people in our community and beyond who do not have any or enough food. We talked about the Christian celebration of the Harvest Festival and thought about the kindness shown by many on this day.
