Robins’ Harvest Festival and Scarecrow Competition

What a fantastic way to end a super half term of learning about Harvest and Autumn.  Robins performed a selection of songs, dances and poems to parents and grandparents.  The children started their Harvest Festival with a lovely rendition of the traditional hymn, ‘We Plough the Fields and Scatter’.  Other highlights included an Autumn leaf dance to Vivaldi’s ‘Autumn’, a rousing version of ‘Mr Scarecrow’ with some fabulous scarecrows and fantastic dancing.  They even performed the Haka dance at the end.

After the performance the parents were served refreshments, which included homemade fruit crumbles and pumpkin biscuits.

A very big thank you to all the children that performed; the speakers, the dancers, the singers – everyone had a part to play in making the Harvest Festival a successful event.  We would also like to thank all the parents, both those that were able to come and support the children on the day but also for their support in practising lines, finding clothes etc.  Robins are also very grateful for the donations of food which have now been sent to the Archer project in Sheffield, a charity which helps homeless people.

Finally, the Scarecrow competition that Robins organised also proved to be a hit.  We received 25 entries and we are sure that you will agree the scarecrows came in all sorts of shapes and sizes.  A very big thank you to the families that took the time to take part, therefore ensuring that it was a great success.

The winning scarecrows were:  1st place– Georgia from Snowy Owls, 2nd place- Reece from Robins and 3rd place- Jake from Robins.  Well done!
