Whiffy Wilson - one of The Guardian's Top Ten Worriers

In a recent article in The Guardian, Georgia Pritchett identified her Top 10  worriers in children's literature.  They range from the adorable Piglet in Winnie the Pooh to Scaredy Squirrel, a wonderful character created by Melanie Watts.  

I was very chuffed to discover that the list also includes Whiffy Wilson! Here's what Georgia has to say:

"This is one of my favourite books. It is about a Wolf who is scared of baths. I read it to my stinky children a lot. It is a rhyming story, skilfully written and with superb illustrations. I hope Scaredy Squirrel never meets Whiffy Wilson..."

Thank you so much Georgia!

Dinosaurs at Russell Scott Primary School

The Year 1 and 2s at Russell Scott Primary, Denton, have been having lots of fun with How to Grow a Dinosaur. Look what happened in their playground the other day!

They've done some brilliant writing and are reading the story with excellent expression! Well done Year 1 and 2!
