Before I opened my parcels I went to the local church for the School Harvest Festival. Each year the school has a festival and the Year 5 students lead the service. Kathryn is Year 5 this year, so it was our turn to attend the service.
The children are all so calm and spoke so clearly. We had two hymns, a play about the importance of water, some prayers and a collection for a water charity. The children were brilliant - and I had my proud mum moment when Kathryn lead off the discussion about water :) Here are a few photos from the service.
The start of the play about the importance of water.
Most of the class - singing for all they are worth!!
Kathryn - distributing bottles of water to the parents
The final part of the service was a little song and dance routine to "Singing in the Rain"
And you should have seen the rain we had today - I think they did a rain dance!!
There are only five boys in Kathryn's class - and this is by the food the children collected.
And here are the girls in the class! I do feel a bit sorry for the boys!!
Tomorrow the children will distribute the food to some of the elderly people in the village.
That's all for now. Jonathan and I have prepared the lounge to be painted, by that I mean we've removed all personal items such as pictures, books, bits and pieces, taken down the blind and curtains - generally it's ready to go. And now I'm off down stairs to watch The Fades! See you all tomorrow.
