Why not enjoy a bedtime story read by on of the St Mary’s staff, or even a friend of the school who loves to read.
The children in Years 3 & 4 went on adventure with Michael Morpurgo and heard about some of his best-loved books including War Horse, The Butterfly Lion, Shadow and Private Peaceful, as well as reading from his latest book, Boy Giant.
