Today in Year 6 we had a special 1 hour story telling session with Dr Mandy Hartley, in the marquee that has been erected on the lower field. Mandy has written a series of books called the DNA Detectives, and the session brought one of these books (The Smuggler’s Daughter) to life.
During the session, children got to dress up as smugglers and Kingsmen to help re-enact the story. They also got hands on with creating DNA strands to help find out what an ancient smuggler looked like, as well as hunt for treasure!
We all loved the session- thank you Mandy!
