Pupils enjoy book festival fun

CHILDREN at a Ponteland school were able to get creative during a special visit by an author and illustrator.

Tracey Corderoy went along to Darras Hall First School last week and treated pupils to an interactive storytime involving props, which was followed by a fun craft session.
