9th October 2017
In preparation for Harvest Fair this Friday, please note the following:
· The KNS Harvest Show 2017 starts at 1pm on this Friday 13th October 2017 – all parents, grandparents etc. are welcome to attend. Each class group will perform a song / dance drama / piece or two and we’ll finish with our harvest sing-song. Our infants will go home at the usual time of 1.40pm. and school closes for all others at 2.40pm as normal.
· Dress up – all pupils are asked to dress up on the Harvest / Autumn theme for this Friday (scarecrows / farmers etc.)
· Making Scarecrows – if parents have old children’s clothes that they could donate tomorrow / Wednesday morning at the latest – solely check shirts and jeans / overalls / straw hats etc. - that would be great to help us make scarecrows for Friday.
· Conker Competition: As is tradition now in KNS, on Friday we hold our whole school Conker Competition during the morning too. Last year’s trophy winners and runners up are asked to return their trophies by tomorrow Tuesday at the latest, if not already done. We have lots of conkers in school already and thanks to all who have collected and donated so far. Please insure your child has at least 1 strung conker ready for the competition for this Friday.
· Jams, breads, cakes, locally grown fruit and veg etc. – parents are asked to drop in any of these that we can sell at our fair by Thursday home time / this Friday morning.
· If parents have any large plastic animals / milk churns / other harvesty or safe props that will help our school yard / garden area take on the look of a farm for Friday, please think about lending these to us on Thursday evening. They will be returned to you by Monday next.
Thanks and happy harvesting y’all!
