Year 4 pupils enjoyed a dance workshop on Monday,  based on'The Arrival by' Shaun Tan.

Shaun Tan creates beautiful surrealist illustrated books and The Arrival is a book that explores themes of immigration, refuge, separation and love in a story without words.

Mrs Jones, the Pre-Preparatory and Preparatory School Librarian, said: "It was a fabulous afternoon and the children really responded to it.

"We had prepared them by talking to them about the book during art lessons and we'd discussed the book and some of Shaun Tan's other works in library lessons beforehand."
