Harvest festival was easily the best assembly at school. You got to bring stuff in, sing songs about ploughing the fields and helping the farmer and your mum got to clear the cupboards of all those tins with no labels.
So to celebrate the arrival of our autumnal smoothie of the month, we had our own mini harvest festival in Fruit Towers today.
Everyone brought in something from home and then spent their lunch hour wrapping boxes and doing fancy stuff with cellophane.
There were some harvest festival classics
As well as some posh tea
A biscuit bus
Some pie mix
And lots of tins.
Everyone got stuck in with the wrapping (and knitting when the scissors were being used)
We covered empty veg pot boxes in pink wrapping paper, filled them with harvest bounty and then cellophaned them up.
And in true harvest festival style, tomorrow we're off down the road to our local community centre, The Grove, to deliver the boxes to the lunch club they hold for the older people every Friday.
