Parents and Grandparents Enjoy Wonderful Harvest Singing!
Bosbury School held another wonderful celebration of harvest on the last day before half term, once again in true tradition being split into two parts throughout the day as a marvellous festival in the church in front of parents in the morning was followed by grandparents being treated to a lovely tea party in the afternoon featuring an encore of singing from Bosbury's superb pupils.
In another Bosbury School tradition, Class 4 took the lead for the Harvest Festival in the church with some suoerbly confident recitals and a very creative piece of dance as the children explored the concept of how colour is particularly important at this time of year.
Harvest songs were then sung by each of the Key Stages, with the choir also putting on another impressive performance with lots of enthusiastic arm movements!
Of course, what more fitting way to end such a brilliant service with what is undoubtedly currently Bosbury School's favourite harvest song!
A fabulous Harvest. Thank you for sharing the service with us. pic.twitter.com/DJ9u2PlBZt— Bosbury Primary (@BosburyPrimary) October 25, 2019
Back at school after lunch, grandparents were treated to tea and cakes and another lovely performance from Key Stage 1...

... and after a very busy Class 4 that day returned to school from their weekly swimming session in Ledbury, it was time for Key Stage 2 and then the choir to perform for one last time this half term in front of our very special guests.

We have a lot of thank yous to give out, first and foremost to our amazing music teacher Mrs. Walker for working so hard with the school and the choir to put together another superb service through all of those Thursday morning hymn practices, and also to Mrs. McManus and Mrs. Wilesmith for their work with Class 4 in perfecting their original and creative colours routine.
Thank you also to our school governor Suanna Rosier for all of her hard work in setting up all the chairs and other furniture in the church ready for the service, to Mr. Smith for operating the music for the event using the church's very own new in-house sound system for the first time (it certainly saved a lot of muscle work in carrying our usual heavy speaker to and from the church!), and to Miss Cooke, Mrs. Bolton and their hardened team of Class 5 waiters and waitresses for serving the tea, coffee and cakes during the grandparents' tea party.
A huge thank you also goes to the Bosbury WI for baking all of the cakes for the afternoon tea party, and to all of the parents and children who very kindly donated food for the new Bosbury Food Bank which has been set up at the village hall.
Finally, thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who attended either event and of course to all of the other children for being so confident and well-behaved during the performances with some excellent singing.
Stay tuned for the Christingle Service 2019 due to take place at the church on Friday 20th December (the last day of the Autumn Term), which is also due to see the long-awaited return of the Bosbury School Parent Choir!
