After the children and families at Sampford Arundel School celebrated a traditional Harvest Festival at the village church with songs and poems. the children visited the older members of the village community and presented them with harvest gifts.
During the service older children presented their work on healthy eating and children in Class One performed the story of the “Little Red Hen.”
Children’s Book Week at Sampford Arundel School was celebrated with a range of activities culminating in Hero and Heroine’s Day. Children dressed as favourite characters and, working on a Roald Dahl theme, made dream-catchers, cooked Revolting Recipes and wrote Revolting Rhymes.
Mrs Walkers who organised the day was delighted with the children’s enthusiastic response. “Reading is so important for learning but is also a great source of pleasure. It is wonderful to see the children so engaged with their books.”
