Craig has been reading to his year 4 class a book written by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell called “Beyond the Deepwoods” This morning Craig has a very special letter to share with his class.

During the film Craig says “books can really help you through some difficult times, and that by reading a good book and escaping into a new world it really helping us to deal with some of the things were having to deal with during the lockdown” Craig wrote to the author to tell him how much his students were enjoying the book and here is a short film of Craig reading a letter of thanks from the author.
