WORLD BOOK DAY and Book Week celebrations 2022

I had such a great time celebrating World Book Day and book week celebrations with Luton Primary School, Ewell Castle School, Krishna Avanti Primary, Michael Faraday Primary and Cypress Primary school and a virtual visit to the British International School, Marbella. I sang songs, told stories, ran writing workshops and was even a judge for a poetry slam.
