It’s been a colourful and creative week in chapel! We’ve celebrated Harvest across the whole school, with each Year Group Bubble taking part in a variety of different ways. Chapel was dressed in a festival style with paper plate bunting, decorating by children in Prep, stunning flowers by Mrs Lynn, and a display of the hundreds of tins and packets of food that children have donated for the Gas Street St Luke’s Food Bank.

Children in Nursery and Reception had their own special services where Mr Neeson spoke to them about where food comes from, and they discovered that even crisps and sweets began life as a tiny seed! Year 1 shared Harvest poems and readings and performed a Harvest Samba! Our Year 2 children gave some confident and clear performances. Each class shared a Harvest ‘S’- Supper, Sharing and Seeds! We learnt that Year 2s particularly love pizza, fish and chips, sausages and sweets! Despite not being able to sing, the children enjoyed doing actions to some of Chaplain’s songs, and made their class teachers very proud!

In Prep, each year group watched a class assembly in Chapel. A big well done to 3EG, 4EB, 5VF and 6RS for delivering such entertaining, but also thought provoking assemblies. We had great fun taking part in a quiz with game show host Jennifer Onion, followed by a drama which focussed on some stark facts about global and local poverty. The children focussed on some of the needs in our own city, and how God wants us to take action and care for the poor and those who don’t have enough to eat.

This afternoon staff and children have been busy packing up all the donations, which will undoubtedly make a huge difference to many who are struggling during this time. A huge thank you to all our parents and children who have given so generously – it is much appreciated!
