Story Time

At Norton we are very fortunate to have volunteers from School Readers who come to the school weekly to read with our children. During this time where schools are only open for vulnerable children and children of key workers the charity has kindly recorded some stories. Please click on the links below to listen to a range of stories.

 

Dear parents and carers,
