Apple Pressing for our Harvest Day

Monday 2nd October was our ‘Celebrating the Harvest’ day. Following our Harvest service in church. Mr Jackson-Pitt, Mr Hall and Mr Thomas brought an apple press and lots of other equipment into school, each child brought an empty plastic bottle and some apples to turn into delicious fresh juice. 

The children were very excited to see the trees in the orchard shaking and apples falling to the floor. They worked hard to collect them all and carefully wash them in big buckets. The washing, ‘scratting’, pressing and bottling resulted in the tastiest apple juice we had ever tasted! 

A huge thank you from all the staff and children.
