Harvest Homework (Whole school)





Whole School Harvest Homework        Autumn 2016


                        Following Cafod’s Harvest theme –

‘Brighten Up This Harvest’


“Jesus asks us to forgive and to give. To be instruments of mercy

because it was we who first received mercy from God.”

Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus, #14


As Pope Francis has asked Catholics to ‘rediscover’ the corporal works of mercy during this Year of Mercy, the Cafod Harvest campaign will help us to fulfil this by ‘feeding the hungry’. Cafod are asking us to Brighten Up this Harvest to raise money to help families in Bolivia, one of the poorest countries in South America where many children suffer from malnourishment.


This whole school homework will also help us to brighten up our homes and schools, while raising funds for this worthy cause.


We are asking you to do four things:

  • Decorate bunting (by 3rd October)
  • Dress up for the day in colourful clothes on Harvest Fast Day, 7th October
  • Make a donation to Cafod
  • Bring some tinned or packets of  food and/or toiletries which will be given to the Farnborough Foodbank to support local families.


Decorate bunting:  using words and pictures. You could try:  

  • Using lots of different colours to draw or collage harvest foods
  • Write a prayer for the hungry in Bolivia
  • Write about ways to make the Harvest a happy time for the poor and the homeless.
  • Please put your name and class on your bunting.


Be as artistic and creative as you can be with your bunting, and return it to school by Monday 3rd October. We are looking forward to having a fabulous display of bunting to decorate St Bernadette’s for the Harvest Liturgies.


On 7th October, you can come to school dressed in colourful clothes. You could wear your house colours, or something bright and colourful to Brighten Up this Harvest. Please, no football kits, and do wear sensible school shoes.  This will combine with the Be Safe Be Seen road safety campaign, so make sure that you are bright and colourful!


Look out for our Harvest Fast Day envelopes coming out to families for donations to Cafod this Harvest.  Your donations will support Cafod’s work in making a difference to the poorest communities across the world.


Many thanks to our families for supporting the children with this homework.
