They worked very hard and took part in all the activities which included circle time and talking about change in nursery and reception, making globes and computing in Year 3 and 4 and attending grammar sessions and programming BeeBots in Year 1 and 2.

Dads enjoyed a roast dinner, took part in modern dance with coach Stephen Sapsed and joined in in collective worship at the end of the day.

Mike Coomes – dad and regular volunteer at Barkway – said: “It was a fantastic day and skills were learned from teachers and children alike!”

Mrs Sharon Brown, federation headteacher of the two first schools, commented on how “successful a day it was for everyone involved” and said that “the excitement and enthusiasm was palpable.”
