Harvest Activities

We have been looking in to the Harvest Festival as part of our 'Celebrations' topic. 


So far we have: 


  • Found out why we celebrate Harvest 
  • Learned the Little Red Hen story off by heart and have been able to write our own wonderful versions! This story is all about a Little Red Hen who grows corn that is then baked in to bread. 
  • We have learned a range of songs and performed these in front of the whole school!
  • We have written a thank you letter to the Kip Project who take our food donations from school to help the homeless community of Wellington. 
  • We have visited the Morris Care Home and performed our wonderful songs to the redsidents. 
  • We have even baked our own bread in class and enjoyed eating this with some jam and honey, yum!

Short Wood Primary School - Aiming high, growing dreams. School is now closed - we will only be open for pupils of essential workers and identified pupils. Please only bring your child to school if you have NO OTHER option for childcare provision, keep your children at home if possible as this is the best way to prevent the spread of the virus.
