Harvest Festival 2019

Year 6 have been busy this week, making apple crumbles to share with the local community for Harvest.


On Friday 4 October, Year 6 distributed the crumbles to 24 houses in the village. They also delivered crumbles and a “treat hamper” to the residents of Annette House.

Report from Reverend Joe Roberts


Last Friday I had the real privilege of visiting Annett House (supported housing) with the Year 6 House Captains and Ann Hingston, to present to the residents a wonderful hamper filled with sweet treats! The residents were delighted to see the children and they really appreciated such a kind gesture. All the pupils were very mature in spending time and chatting with them, and it was a joy for all to hear their impromptu lively singing of Harvest songs and songs they are learning in class! A great time was had by all and the residents are definitely looking forward to the school coming back to visit them soon. The hamper was put together with all the generous items donated (thank you parents/carers!), alongside the many other products that went off to the Salvation Army to those locally in genuine need.


I also know that many apple crumbles were made (over 40 in total!) by Year 6 and that they were handed out to residents in Potten End with Simon Barnard, who commented on pupils’ excellent conduct. We should really take pride in all our children – in their generosity, kindness and behaviour, especially in the building of links with different members of our community.

Dear Mrs Sharpling and Year 6


What a lovely surprise I had when I opened the door to all you lovely people bearing your most delicious gift of apple crumble.


My husband and I have enjoyed not one, but two meals as a result. Thank you so much, that was really special, added to which I loved to see all your beaming faces.


Every blessing to each one of you.


Yours Mr & Mrs N
