RECEPTION class pupils at St Werburgh’s and St Columba’s RC Primary School have been collecting leaves and conkers and baking bread in a celebration of autumn.

There are two classes at the Hoole school and teachers Debbie McLintoch, Amanda Chesworth and Kate Marchant as well as teaching assistant Lynsey Mursell.

The youngsters, who started school in September, have been helped to settle in by Year 6 play buddies.

See next week’s Chronicle for a photograph of the young ones at Duddon St Peter’s CE Primary School.
