Reading Evening Delights Pupils and Parents

Something strange and wonderful happened on the playing field at Richard de Clare School on Monday evening.  The trees began to grow books from their branches!

To take advantage of this, the current Reception children and children starting in September were invited to come and explore the forest of books and share them with their families.
