Shirley Primary School and DavidYoungsters from Cambridge's Shirley Primary School welcomed MP David Howarth on Friday when he went back to the classroom to mark Anti Bullying Week.

Mr Howarth visited the school's upper site in Nuffield Road to learn more about the work carried out by the Year 5s and 6s to celebrate the national campaign.

He was shown story boards created on the computer by the children as they explored different forms of bullying and how to tackle them. They also acted out their stories.

Teacher Camilla Coulson said: "Their ideas were very diverse and the work was very impressive. They thoroughly enjoyed the week."

Six youngsters from the two year groups took time out to explain their work to Mr Howarth.

He also joined the youngsters for a theatre production by the visiting Play Right Theatre Company.

Mr Howarth said: "The children have produced some excellent work on a very important issue. They clearly understood the different forms of bullying and what to do if they were being bullied.

"I was delighted to have the opportunity to spend time with them."
