Blue Peter comes to The Manor
The boys and girls were delighted to welcome Lindsey Russell, the first Blue Peter presenter to be elected by the viewers, to the school this term.
Lindsey is a former pupil of The School of St Helen and St Katharine and so The Manor was very keen to support her. The boys and girls enthusiastically voted for Lindsey in July 2013 when the nations children decided on the next Blue Peter presenter in a telephone phone-in after each applicant had passed through a series of gruelling challenges. The Manor was delighted that Lindsey won.
At The Manor, Lindsey attended the Year 3 and Year 4 Poetry Festival where she presented the prizes and talked to the children. She particularly enjoyed meeting the girls and hearing the animated and illustrated poetry recitals.
The whole school then assembled in the new playground as Lindsey officially opened the fabulous Year 4 building and ICT suite.
Lindseys visit was as exciting for the adults as it was for the children!Published: June 6 2014
