And that was not all: Mrs Hurcum's Y1 class had taken assembly, acting out Class Two at the Zoo wearing animal hats they had made themselves. The hats and lots more great paintings had been made into another gorgeous display on their classroom wall:
Don't you just LOVE those parrots?
I spent the rest of the day having fun, working my way through each of the 3 Y1 classes in turn, telling stories, singing sings and doing lots and lots of drawing with the children.
At 3 o'clock, the local New Leaf Bookshop came into school. They brought loads of my books and I signed frantically until I had to literally dash from the hall, to jump in a taxi and be zoomed back to the station.
