Harvest Service at St John's Church

Harvest Festival this year was a musical extravaganza to celebrate our work on this terms Christian Value of Respect.  We have been thinking about showing love and compassion for everyone irrespective of differences, religion or culture.  Our theme became ‘Harvest around the World’ with the classes contributions including:

 

Reception— A nice traditional British hymn to start us off

Y1—As song related to their work on the Jewish festival of Sukkot

Y2—Harvest for the world song

Y3—A Brazilian Harvest—Harvest Samba Song

Y4—An African Harvest—African Bread song

Y5—A Caribbean harvest—Reggae, Reggae Harvest Song

Y6—An Asian Harvest—Rice song

 

The service included two songs that we have learnt with St John’s British Sign Language choir—’Thankful’ and ‘Bread of Life’ performed brilliantly by the children.  The finale was a ‘Imela’ meaning thank you—a Pearl of Africa song which we will be singing with the choir when they visit after half term. The infant and Junior choirs also contributed well making this year a harvest service to remember with everyone humming and singing the songs for the rest of the day.
