Prior to half-term Year 2 spent time learning about the history of the Harvest Festival. Harvest is traditionally a time to come together and celebrate the year’s crop and be thankful to God for providing us with food.
This year, each class observed the festival individually, discussing the topic in class before heading out to the vegetable garden to harvest some crops of their very own. The children were most excited that following their harvest they were then welcome to take some of the vegetables home with them to eat for tea!
A follow-up lesson was led by Fr Pat in the Chapel, which focused on the importance of being thankful for things and the idea of sharing and giving within our own communities.
