Harvest is an important time of year for Richmond House School, as it is when we remember all we have, and we give to those who are in need. This year we celebrated Harvest with a difference. Instead of the traditional church service, we put a greater emphasis on community and sustainability and undertook fun activities across all year groups as part of the Richmond House School Harvest Project.
We were very fortunate that the weather was fine and dry, a number of classes went outside to plant bulbs, collect items for Autumn artwork and make popcorn on the fire.
Year 2 made a tree sculpture on the field, Year 5 made Autumn wreaths and the youngest children enjoyed apple bobbing and fruit printing.
The handmade wreaths were delivered to members of our local community and some tea / coffee hampers were donated by our PA and delivered by the children to local care homes and sheltered accommodation.
As part of the day we also collected donations of food and toiletries from parents which were taken to St George’s Crypt.
