Pupils at Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School in Wanstead enjoyed a week of workshops as part of World Book Day celebrations in March.

“Pupils had a lesson with cartoonist James Parsons, were entertained with Caribbean folktales by storyteller Wendy Shearer and completed a poetry workshop with World Poetry Slam champion Harry Baker. The week ended with a whole-school storytelling bonanza, including a parent session with tales from around the world led by storyteller Pat Ryan,” said headteacher Ruth Boon.
