World Book Day

Last Friday saw The Croft celebrate World Book Day with a multitude of fabulous costumes from both children and staff. We were also extremely lucky to have a visit, in Pre-Prep, from author and illustrator Claire Henley. This was a very enlightening talk which showed the children the various stages that an illustration goes through before the final print. This culminated in the children being allowed to touch and have a closer look at a finished picture which was painted with acrylics. Year 2 pupils then proceeded to make one page  of a 'lift the flap' book with guidance from Ms Henley. A wonderful day was had by all.
