Reception pupils got a pleasant surprise when their afternoon stories were read by a pair of very familiar faces.
As the children settled down for storytime they were amazed to see the mums of two pupils walk in with books in their hands.
Mrs Carter, mum to Freya, read The Smartest Giant in Town while Mrs Delaney, mum to Amelia, read Dinosaur Rumpus to widespread approval from the delighted pupils.
Reception teacher Mrs Hampson said: “We regularly invite parents and grandparents in to the school to read to the children and it’s always a huge success. The children were delighted to see Mrs Carter and Mrs Delaney and hear their stories.”
