Year 4 did Miss Slater and Miss Small proud by putting on amazing show last Friday….Year 4 have been reporting on all that went on!
On Friday the 6 of October the year fours performed an amazing play. We face-timed three different countries to see how they celebrate harvest.
We face timed America and found out that in America they celebrait thanks giving. They pray and give thanks to God for all the things that they are thankfull for. Roast turkey and pumpkin pie are favourite dishes on that day.
We face timed Africa and found out that in Africa they sing and dance👯💃🏼. They were masks when they dance and each dance tells a story . In Africa the yams are the first crops to be harvested. Yams are a bit like sweet potato and are really tasty mashed. People offer yams to the gods before giving them out to the rest of the village. Some of the year four children performed a traditional dance.
We face timed Germany and found out that in Germany they have Oktoberfest to celebrait the end of the rainy season. They harvest grapes and enjoy them as a healthy treat. Many grapes are made into grape wine because it is the easiest thing to turn grapes into.
The year fours sung we are the world by Michael Jackson. The whole of the school sung harvest samba and Autum days. The year two qoir sung thank you Lord. The year five and six qoir sung only one world.
Caption Alex from the Salvation Army came to watch our play. After the play he came and every about were are donations of were going to go. He also said that our play was very good.
Mr Nash came and blessed the food and the year two and year five bibles by saying a prair.
At the end there were three prairs and there was also a blessing. When all the other year groups had left the church. The parents were aloud to come and take pictures of their children in there coustumes.
At the Harvest performance everyone had a great time and we had lots of comments. The first person to step on the stage was Mr Martland he welcomed everyone to our performance after everyone was welcomed we started are play by having a congressional song it was called Autumn days we sung it so nicely everyone gave us a round of applause then we started are play first up was the interdiction people.

Hi, On Friday Year 4 performed there harvest around the world. So we practiced and practised before the day for about an hour each day.do it. People brought food in for Captain Alex, a Salvation Army worker to take to them. It happened on the 6th of October 2017. They face timed three different countries including; America, with wierd and wonderful accents, Africa, with a cool and funky dance and Germany with a grape joke!!! There were lots of donations such as: Cans, Buiscits, Pasta, Bread and (e.c.t). The year 2 choir sang and so did the Year 5 and 6 choir. Year 4 sang We Are The World. Then Every body sang Autumn Days at the begging of the performance. Then the school sang The Harvest Samba with a funky tune. The Year 4s performed a BEAUTIFUL play. The Year 4 play included Africans, Americans, Germans, Donation Centre Workers and a moody, old and wet Jacob but he is still generous with his donations though. They visited America first were they were having a dinner party. Also at Africa they did an amazing dance as they talked about yams :D. Finally they visited Germany were they have a joke, drinks, costumes and wonder-filling things to discover. They then ended there journey with a trip to deliver the food to the Salvation Army. George, Owen, Leon, Harvey, Jay and Finn end with prayers as Autumn does a blessing. Before they sang we are the world some brave soloists sang there part but even before that some hand chimeras hand chimed!! It was absolutely amazing and every body loved the performance and all got a raffle ticket and all the actors were nervous but still did it amazingly! Sadly Millie was sick so could not do her blessing with Autumn so Autumn had to do the blessing in the performance. Every body did amazing and nobody forgot there lines at all but some people were quit but only because they were nervous but even if they were quite they were all still amazing, Africans wore black and a colourful bit of fabric attached to there mask, Americans wore a party outfit, Germans wore a colourful top, leggings or jeans, colourful braces and a funky coloured, feathery hat, Prayer readers were there school uniforms and Donation Centre Workers wore leggings or jeans and their P.E top. But when we were in a lesson of R.E I found a website that had a paragraph exactly the same as a part of the script… Should we arrest Miss Slater and Miss Small for plagerism or not…?
Before the actual performance all the Year 4s were worryng about making any mistake and were EVEN nervous about performing in front of the school but that’s not TOO bad. Every body loved doing it but was still worried and there were three people who did act but didn’t go on stage who were, Kaylon, William and Ruby. I loved my part and was happy with it. I loved the fact that Eve told a marvellous joke “But many grapes are made into a HEALTHY liquid treat isn’t that right adults,” Every body :”CHEERS”

On Friday the 6th of October all of year four worked on a outstanding harvest play performance. We hope you enjoyed it. We face timed 3 different countries Africa,America and Germany. It was very fun. We had some very funny jokes. Make sure you aren’t loud when people are speaking hope you like our songs . There are people who do prayers and a blessing. Autumn and Millie did the blessing. Harvey, Owen, Finn, Leon and George do the prayers.
The Africans did an exiting dance so we hope you like our dance by the Africans. There are some pop up people that you might not even see. The Americans celebrate harvest by thanksgiving . If you have a prayer you will be told to put it at the back of the church and you can keep the baby with you so you don’t have to keep it in a small space beacause people might be walking up and down there so that’s just in case. Grace did her amazing signature dance move .
