Re: KNS Harvest Fair Day - for parents of infant pupils
6th October 2016
Noting that the weather can get a bit cooler and damper towards the end of October, I and our staff have decided that it would be a sensible idea to bring Harvest Fair forward to Friday October 14th (from later in the month, as previously indicated by September’s newsletter).
As parents of infant pupils, you may not know what the KNS Harvest Fair is so please note the following:
What is the Harvest Fair theme?
• It’s a whole school celebration of harvest where we do lots of lessons on Autumn and the harvest, leading to a whole school Autumn / harvest themed day.
What does this mean for parents?
• It means that pupils may dress up on Friday 14th October on the harvest theme – as farmers, scarecrows etc. Please don’t feel under pressure to put together a very fancy costume for your child - a pair of old jeans and an old shirt will do nicely, but of course if your child wishes to do something fancier, that’s great too.
• As your child will participate in our whole school KNS Conker Competition on the day, your child can bring in lots of conkers to play with between now and the 14th October. If your child doesn’t bring any conkers in, not to worry, we have already gathered up almost 600 and they will be distributed over the coming days.
• Finally, like in previous years, parents are welcome at the school from 1-2pm (approximately) on KNS Harvest Day – 14th October. This year, we’ll be holding a short KNS Harvest Show, with some singing and dancing. It promises to be a nice mix of fun educational activities.
