Children take part in ‘Experience Harvest’

Children take part in ‘Experience Harvest’

This week, the whole school have been up to the Church to take part in Experience Harvest. This was a series of engaging and creative workshops thoughtfully put together by our Friends from Holy Cross to help children explore Harvest interactively. All classes said how they enjoyed the experience and the Church said they were beautifully behaved and engaged. I would like to thank Reverend Shirley and her team of volunteers from the Church who provided such a memorable experience for all of our children. It was Class R’s first trip!

Wednesday 5th October was a beautiful, sunny, autumn morning; perfect for Class R’s  first class trip! Although we didn’t go far (just to Holy Cross Church) it was a big adventure for us. We walked near the  River Thames, along the road and down the  path to the church with conkers falling around us! Once at the church we enjoyed the activities provided for us which helped us to learn about and experience Harvest. We made cotton wool sheep, tasted bread, made prayer fish, looked at donations for the Swindon foodbank and tried to name some harvest produce. Reverend Shirley and her team made us all feel very welcome. It made us all very hungry so we walked as fast as we could and got back just in time for lunch!
