Of all the events in the Christian calendar which we celebrate, Harvest is one the the most enjoyable, as it gives all of the children an opportunity to think about what our values mean in practice and how we can help others.
This year our children had a new approach to Harvest: instead of preparing traditional harvest boxes for older members of the Dentdale community, the Class 2 children made chutneys for them from locally sourced apples. This meant that they were able to collect food instead for a food-bank in Kendal, and will be exploring how they can help to serve others there.
As always it was a lovely occasion and we greatly appreciate the support of those community members who joined us for our celebration.
Class 1, who have also been learning about Harvest in RE, also joined in by performing a harvest poem which they had written.
