On Monday 23rd April, Amber class visited Rochdale Library. The visit was arranged by the library staff to celebrate St George’s Day. St George is the patron saint of England who famously slayed a dragon to save a princess. On arrival at the library Ray Stern, retired children’s librarian, read the children two versions of the story of St George – one in which the dragon was an evil beast and the other in which the dragon was a friendly animal. The children were then allowed to explore the children’s book section of the library and choose books to read themselves or with an adult from school. At the end of the visit the children were each given a book. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed the morning and are looking forward to returning to the library in the future.
