Stanley comes to Woodcroft

Children’s author and illustrator William Bee is a good friend of Woodcroft, and we were delighted when he offered his funny, colourful Stanley books to feature on the new Woodcroft Home School website. Stanley is a hamster who, along with his friends Hattie and Little Woo, explores everyday life through the busy world of work.

We all need cheering up from time to time, and while many of us are stuck at home it is good to remember those who are out there providing us with food and working on the things that will help us to bounce back when this is over. So, from Stanley’s adventures as a farmer, shopkeeper and train driver, through to his work as a builder and mechanic, join us as we celebrate those who continue to keep things going in our every day lives.

Stanley will be exclusively available to all of our parents completely free via the new Woodcroft Home School website. We will be serialising his adventures each week, starting with Stanley’s School. Those of you who look closely may even recognise something familiar about this particular educational establishment …

Many thanks to William Bee (and our mutual friend Ian Bilbey) for making this special edition possible. Tune in again on Monday 27 April from 9am for our first instalment: Stanley’s School!
