Haworth Primary School teacher, Caron Stone asked me if I would come and open their new Key stage one Library for them. I sensed a special teacher and a special school so I was more than happy to say yes. You can sense some schools really buzzing the moment you walk in and Haworth is one of those. The day was brilliantly planned and ran to the minute, even if I did go overtime a bit!
The new Library is gorgeous, stuffed with picturebooks and younger titles. Not a computer in sight -well, there is the librarian’s computer for logging books in and out, but not one to get in the way of books and stories – hooray!
The Reception children made me Cat and Dog biscuits which were wonderful. I showed them how to draw and paint Cat and dog and they went on to do some fantastic drawings.
I was a bit too scary for some in years one and two – I’m very sorry! With years three and four, we came up with a brilliant story about pirahnas and years five and six came up with a brilliant ghost idea that was o good I might use it myself, so I’m not going to tell you about it!
TheLibrary opening was helped along with some fantastic home made cakes. The chocolate fairy cakes were a particular triumph!
Bob Swindells, the children’s author joined us too as he lives locally with his wife, Brenda, who turned out to have taught Caron when she was younger and inspired her to become a teacher herself!
Thanks for a wonderful day and good luck with the rest of the week.
