On the 3rd, I had a lovely trip out to Heathcote P.S, and was startled to find myself surrounded by fairies, pirates, supervillains, and other creatures of legend and mystery. I thought I was going to be talking to a bunch of plain old school children, but the kids of Heathcote are clearly an extraordinary lot! Luckily one of the Year 2 girls explained to me... "We're not REAL fairies - it's just costumes!" So that was very reassuring. They were all dressed up for Book Week, and absolutely getting into the spirit of it all.
Thanks for letting me come and talk to you, Heathcote P.S! And special hi to Zak, who's pen I had to sign - twice!
