Harvest Festival

Wednesday the 17th of October was Harvest Festival for all in Fleggburgh School. The theme for our harvest festival this year was foraging.

The festival began with small groups of children from Reception to Year 6 making fruit crumbles ready for harvest tea. Everyone worked well together as a team and it was lovely to see the older pupils encouraging and supporting the younger pupils to take part.

In the afternoon we carried our boxes up to Fleggburgh St. Margaret’s Church, which was full of our parents, family and the village community, and placed them at the altar. We had a talk and blessing from Father Simon who led the harvest service. Emerald Class talked about the different vegetables that grow in this country and Diamond Class explained how we used to forage for food in the stone-age and how we still forage for fruit today.

We all then returned to school for a wonderful afternoon tea of our fruit crumbles. They tasted yummy!
