Harvest Festival

3rd October 2018
This morning we celebrated Harvest Festival in school.
 
The children brought in lots of generous donations of produce including fresh fruit and vegetables and lots of other items like tins of soup. The school corridors echoed with the sound of "Cauliflowers fluffy…", and all the food donations were collated and are now on their way to The Grantham Food Bank.
 
This is the time of year when all the crops have been harvested. Harvest Festival is a celebration of the food grown on the land. Thanksgiving ceremonies and celebrations for a successful harvest are both worldwide and very ancient. In Britain, we have given thanks for successful harvests since pagan times.
 
This is also an opportunity to teach children about helping others. Poplar Farm School are supporting The Grantham Food Bank this year, to find out more please visit www.granthamfoodbank.org.uk
