Sean Perkins visits Lyme!

Date: 19th Apr 2023 @ 3:30pm

This afternoon author Sean Perkins visited Lyme to share his latest book with us 'Oscar and Ben - The Birthday Party'. 

Sean introduced the children to the main characters Oscar and Ben but first they had to wake them up from their sleeping bag. Once the cats Oscar and Ben were awake they sat in our classroom and listened to the story too!  Oscar and Ben ventured into the forest to celebrate the birthday of their good friend Mrs Hen.  

The story was exciting and entertaining and Sean even added special sound effects.  At the end of the session Sean played his guitar and we sang a song about the story.
