PUPILS at Burley and Woodhead Primary School invited members of the local Womens’ Institute into school recently to sample their version of tea and scones.

The WI donation of £500 to the School Council was used to buy new books to enhance the school library. Pupils thanked members with a Fairtrade afternoon tea party where pupils shared their excitement about the new titles.

Dan, a pupil at the school, said: "I read The Shape Shifter. It's an adventurous story and was different to anything I have read before. Thank you.”

Maria, also a pupil, read The Proudest Blue, which she said was an amazing story about resilience and being happy with who you are.

Sally Hughes, Learning Mentor at the school said the tea was a wonderful opportunity to show members of the committee what a real impact their donation had made. She added: "Pupils were also very excited to showcase their baking skills to members of the W.I.”
