We had a fabulous day on Tuesday with our Patron of Reading, Margaret Bateson-Hill, at Cypress Lower. We started with an assembly story about a rat family – inspired by the Chinese New Year of the rat! Margaret then went on to work with each Year One class and we look forward to showing off some of our writing later in the week.
After school, Margaret held a workshop for Cypress families called ‘Tablecloth Stories’. This focussed on families storytelling together and recording their stories on paper tablecloths through drawings and writing. The hall was alive with the most imaginative stories – what creative families we have at Cypress! Please enjoy some of the fruits of this labour in the photographs. A huge thank you to Margaret for running this magical workshop!
