- Reception 2024
We were delighted to welcome world-famous author, Lesley Pearse, to Warberry CofE Academy on Tuesday 1st November for the grand opening of the school library. Over the last term, the school library has been refurbished and replenished with the most fabulous range of books for all the children in the school to enjoy from our 2-year-olds in Nursery up to our 11-year-olds in Year 6.
Lesley Pearse cut the ribbon to announce the library officially open and then spent time with a small group of children who were eagerly awaiting her visit in the library. She spoke of her love of reading being the key to her writing success and recalled some of her favourite children’s books that she enjoyed as a child and continues to enjoy with various family members now.
Our children in Years 4 and 5 were completely inspired as she led a question-and-answer session in our school hall. She spoke about the importance of practising writing to keep improving and again reiterated how vital reading is to everything in life, which is something that we strongly believe at Warberry. It was wonderful to feel the buzz from the children and the enthusiasm to become authors when they grow up.
