The audience were transfixed as the Pre-Prep performed a special assembly to celebrate Harvest. The children clearly enjoyed singing the songs that Mr Birch had chosen for them to learn with him in their music lessons.
The Nursery children started the proceedings by delighting the audience as they all got on board a Hazlegrove minibus to act out the story of ‘The Pumpkin Patch’ and looked adorable dressed as Squirrels to sing ‘Grey Squirrel’. The Reception class followed with a performance of ‘The Farmer’s in the dell’ with more and more characters joining the farmer in the dell!
Year 1 and 2 have been learning their dances separately with Mrs Arnold in their dance lessons and put them together, dancing with great focus for the assembly.
Some Year 2 children read prayers before we ended our assembly with the whole Pre-Prep singing together. It really was a very fitting celebration.
Thank you for all the wonderful harvest contributions that decorated the theatre for the Assembly and were put on sale in the band stand at home time to raise money for the charity Mary’s Meals.
