Michaelmas festival will be “wonderful” day for all!
On Monday 29th, the whole school will be celebrating the festival of Michaelmas. Everyone will be taking part in a wonderful day gardening around our school grounds, stop- ping at lunchtime for a helping of hearty soup, lovingly prepared by class 7 , full of harvest vegetables. Class 2/3 are also baking a Mich- aelmas dragon bread to share.
This year, we would like to think about those struggling to put food on their table this Autumn time by con- tributing tinned and packet goods to our local food bank.
Please see below for a list of things to bring along on Monday: Classes 1,2 and 3 Bread (loaves that can be cut into chunks to accompany the soup)
Classes 4,5/6, 7, 8 , 9 and 10 Vegetables for the soup (Fruit is welcome too, for dessert) Classes 1, 2 and 3 Hand forks and trowels and gardening gloves Classes 4, 5/6, 7, 8,
9 and 10 Spades and Forks, Shears or seca- teurs , and gardening gloves.
Does anyone have any spare bulbs or peren- nials that we can plant on Monday, if so, we would be very glad of them and one last thing if anyone has a wheelbarrow that we might borrow on Monday, it would be so useful as we are now down to our last 3 at school…we seriously need to have a wheelbarrow repair session next workday!!
Last but not least, there will be a box in the foyer next to our Michaelmas harvest soup table for the food bank goodies to be collated. Classes 9 and 10 will be distributing the food within the week.
Our Michaelmas day celebration is a lovely occasion to be part of, if any parents would like to come along and help with the day, and experience the magic first-hand they will be most welcome.
