School’s fun on ra­dio waves

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

PRI­MARY school chil­dren en­joyed a visit from Silk FM.

DJ Dane and the sta­tion’s mas­cot Cheshire Cat dropped into St Al­ban’s Pri­mary School af­ter it was made ‘school of the week’.

The visi­tors got in­volved in one the school as­sem­blies and were en­ter­tained by a va­ri­ety of songs.

Five year six chil­dren, in­clud­ing the head boy and head girl, were in­ter­viewed, while the school’s ‘pet vet’, El­iz­a­beth Sum­mers, told Dane how she taught the Re­cep­tion Class how to look af­ter its two pet guinea pigs, Racer and Sausage.

Other pupils, Louis Fox and Joss Abbs Brown, read out po­ems writ­ten for the school’s pro­ject about home­less­ness.

Joss, St Al­ban’s news re­porter, said: “It was an amaz­ing morn­ing. We wel­comed our visi­tors with one of our bril­liant as­sem­blies. To top off the whole event, as we sang our hearts out, Cheshire Cat from Silk FM danced along with us.

“Dara Fowler and Amy Marsh told Silk FM all about their im­por­tant role as head boy and head girl and about St Al­ban’s sport­ing achieve­ments. I ex­plained to Silk FM how my poem about home­less­ness was pub­lished by Mac­cles­field Ex­press a few months ago.

“El­iz­a­beth Sum­mers ex­plained how she is re­spon­si­ble for look­ing af­ter Racer and Sausage at week­ends and dur­ing the school hol­i­days. Dane and Cheshire Cat made our morn­ing. Cheshire Cat told us we were the best school of the week.”
