YOUNGSTERS have been learning a thing or two about Charles Dickens thanks to older students.

Boys in year eight at Spalding Grammar School studied the life and works of Charles Dickens in term one of this year.

English teacher Ruth Harding-White said: “Part of the scheme was to produce a booklet on Dickens, which was suitable for younger children.

“They then met up with the reception class children at Spalding’s Ayscoughfee Hall School to show them the booklets.”

The Grammar School students who were involved are Patrick Donnelly, Tommy Carter, Gabriel Hammond, Elliot Kullseid, Paul Lawrence, Harry Louth, Matthew Ogden, Anthony Roofe, Calvin Wilson and James Gallagher.

Their booklets included facts about the author, along with simple quiz questions and pictures.
