Children celebrate the harvest

PUPILS from two Wargrave schools celebrated the harvest.

Children from Robert Piggott Junior School in School Hill took part in a harvest service at St Mary’s Church in Station Road. The pupils took in tins and packets of food to donate to food bank ReadiFood and made a pile at the altar.

Years three and four gave a presentation about bees, butterflies and worms called “The forgotten heroes of harvest”. Years five and six gave one called “God as a faithful gardener” in which they looked at three gardens in the Bible.

Headteacher Michele Honeyfield said: “The celebration included many items that had been kindly donated and the service was well attended by parents.”

Children from Robert Piggott Infant School in Beverley Gardens held a harvest assembly for their parents as well as villagers. Each class was given one or two letters of the word “harvest” to do a presentation or song about.
