Au­thor books in at school

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

CHIL­DREN at an Ash­ford school were en­ter­tained by au­thor Michael Rosen dur­ing their an­nual book week. Mr Rosen read po­etry to pupils at Fur­ley Park Pri­mary on this year’s cho­sen theme, the weather. Book week or­gan­iser Frances East said that the school had many vis­i­tors dur­ing book week, in­clud­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the En­vi­ron­ment Agency, Mid Kent Wa­ter and the Bri­tish Red Cross. “We also had a visit from some ice sculp­tors who did sculpt­ing in front of the chil­dren,” she said. “It was a bril­liant week.” Last Thurs­day was fancy dress day and staff and chil­dren came ei­ther along a weather theme or as their favourite story book char­ac­ters.
