Harvest Day October 2014
On Wednesday 1st October we held a ‘Harvest Day' at Newstead. Throughout the school we hosted a variety of fun and interactive activities to help the children to learn all about Harvest traditions. In EYFS and Key Stage 1 we started the day talking about harvest and took our food donations to the hall. All food that was collected was donated to the local food bank to support others in need.
We discussed the reasons why we donate food at this time of year and proceeded to enjoy a variety of activities such as an Autumn walk to collect leaves to create a leaf collage. Reception made their own bread and created split pin scarecrows. Key stage 1 sang a variety of Harvest songs, wrote about Harvest and made beautiful Harvest fruit baskets.
Key Stage 2 also discussed harvest traditions and donated to the harvest food collection. Year 3 completed some beautiful writing about the meaning of harvest whilst year 4 focused on Harvest around the world. Year 5 made harvest baskets and wrote about Harvest whilst year 6 looked at fairtrade and linked this to the harvesting of the Brazil nut in the Amazon rainforests. They also wrote some wonderful acrostic poems.
Everyone had a fun day and thoroughly enjoyed learning all about Harvest.
