Harvest is an important time for Pre-Prep. It marks the transition from summer to autumn and is such a wonderful celebration of the world around us. We enjoyed a traditional Harvest Festival, bringing gifts to the harvest table. These generous donations were gratefully received at The Gatehouse Charity in Oxford at the weekend.
We were joined by Rev’d Paul Gooding, assistant Chaplain from the Senior School and also Paul Wisby, who accompanied us on the guitar and ukelele. The children sang and shared an array of songs and poems, from Reception dressed in flippy-floppy hats just like the scarecrows in their song, to the lively verses about Conkers and the ever popular Big Red Combine Harvester. Year 1 built a poem, the ukelele club performed their first ever group piece, whilst Year 2 researched and confidently explained the work of The Gatehouse charity as part of our celebration and told us about the meals that are provided for the homeless in Oxford.
