This term, we have studied Harvest in our classes. We have been very fortunate that our local minister and youth worker from Peasedown Methodist Church provided us with a video about What Harvest is? and Why do we celebrate Harvest?
From this, each class has done some work to celebrate harvest and brought in donations to help local people through the Foodbank! Thank you to everyone for their donations: they are greatly appreciated.
For harvest, the children in reception have been learning some songs alongside learning about harvest in class. They hope you enjoy them.

This autumn, Sunflower Class have been busy learning about planting. With this in mind, they have been planting bulbs to grow in planters around our school. For this, they created an instructional video on how to plant a bulb.
This week, Jade, Fern and Aqua have been busy studying Harvest through Guided Reading. They have studied the poem, 'The Harvest Moon', discussing how the poet has used personification to bring the moon to life. From this, they have learned and performed the poem with some of them even incorporating actions. They hope you enjoy their recital.
In Sapphire and Sky, the children have been busy learning about the meaning of Harvest. From this, they decided to create some beautiful artwork focusing on Harvest and still life drawing techniques. I think we can all agree when we say how wonderful this artwork is!
Here are our wonderful Atlantic Class performing the Harvest Moon.
Pacific Class have been extremely busy learning the poem, 'Something told the wild geese'. Here is their fantastic rendition.
Year 6 have been incredibly busy looking at the question, 'What is the meaning of Harvest?'. They have spent time researching this in Guided Reading and created some wonderful non-fiction reports about the meaning of Harvest.
As a part of our harvest celebrations, we asked families to help our local foodbank by bringing in donations to support them. We were overwhelmed by the generous donations and everyone at PSJ would like to say a HUGE thank you for everyone's support. On Wednesday afternoon, we visited The Hive Community Centre to drop off the donations to our local foodbank drop off point. Thank you all again for your fantastic support.
