This Term at St Andrew's!
Friday 25th January – Village Halls Week
To celebrate Village Halls Week, we were invited by Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) to join author Steve Antony (www.steveantony.com) for a storytelling and illustration workshop on Friday 25th January. Steve spent the day telling us a bit about his life in New Mexico and what inspired him to become an author/illustrator. The whole school thoroughly enjoyed listening to some of the stories he has written. In the afternoon the Churchill and Godolphin classes had the opportunity to work with Steve writing their own picture book. The event was covered by Faye Hatcher from BBC Radio Glos. A group of children from Godolphin class were interviewed for the radio show and thoroughly enjoyed their moment of fame!
