Our Patron of Reading, Margaret Bateson-Hill, came over to the Lower site this afternoon to tell some stories to the children in Nursery and Rainbows. Afterwards, she delivered a fully interactive story to Reception and Years One and Two. We heard the amazing African story of Unanana and the Enormous One-Tusked Elephant. We have been singing, dancing, stomping and eating maize porridge!
After school, Margaret met some of our lovely families and signed her books for them. What a thing to treasure – a signed book by an author you know! We will be delighted to welcome Margaret back to Cypress next year and we have already made some plans for more storytelling…..watch this space!
