Youngsters at the school, in Pulford Road, South Tottenham, were treated to a lively performance from well-known professional story-teller Jamie Crawford, as its annual English week drew to a close.

Organised by Tiverton’s English leader Isabel Hamilton, pupils enjoyed a day and night of storytelling, dressing up as fictional characters from their favourite stories. Then, 34 lucky pupils ended the day with a school sleepover, spending the night reading, telling stories and enjoying pizza and a movie together.

Miss Hamilton said: “The theme of this year’s English week was ‘The power of narrative’. I wanted raise the profile of reading for pleasure by encouraging pupils to respond to narrative in as many creative and fun ways as possible. The children and staff threw themselves into the day with enthusiasm and gusto and it was a great success.”
