Harvest 2017 

We staged our annual Harvest Festival at St. Peter’s Church Hoyland in front of a wonderfully supportive congregation. Children from EYFS 2 and Years 1-2 gave a superb performance of art, poetry, prayer and song to celebrate the fruits of the earth. Many thanks to Mrs. Evans for her coordination of this event – it was simply beautiful. Thanks to all Staff for their support of the event not least Mr. Ormondroyd for the musical accompaniment and Mr. Smith for the film. Thank you to Father Richard and Father Paul for allowing us to utilise our beautiful Church and special thanks to our #WonderfulCommunity for your support and attendance. Well done to everyone involved in this fabulous service; some wonderful messages were shared in a charming, creative and engaging way.

Autumn Days in Paint

We have been painting some autumn trees to show the change in the seasons. We sketched our trees and then painted them carefully using different techniques. We will be displaying them at the Harvest Festival in a few weeks to show our family and friends.
