As part of Hereford Cathedral Junior School’s Harvest Festival celebrations, pupils came to school in their wellies for a day earlier this month.

The ‘Wear Your Wellies to School’ effort raised a grand total of £396.45 for Action Against Hunger, a charity which works to save the lives of malnourished children across the globe, providing food and access to clean water to deprived communities.

This year, children across the school have celebrated Harvest in lots of different ways. In addition to our Harvest-focused assemblies, each form/year group have taken part in a Harvest-related activity. Nursery children enjoyed making footprints with their wellies, and used the prints to create the word ‘Harvest’.

Reception enjoyed decorating their own wellies. In 1TW’s video, the children tell you about their favourite fruit and vegetables. 2D enjoyed performing their onomatopoeia poem. 3D and 3M joined forces to perform their Harvest prayer. In their videos, 4B tell you about how they have been harvesting food at home and about their favourite fruit and vegetables. You can also watch 4W perform their ‘Combine Harvester’ dance. 5L and 5B worked hard to write their own Harvest poems, while 6G enjoyed creating some illustrated letters and 6J wrote their own acrostic poems.

Well done to everyone for their efforts to celebrate this year’s Harvest in a creative way.
