Year six at Portway Junior School have been using Swan Boy as their book this year, and have written and performed extra scenes, sung songs, and even learnt ballet as they read! This has been noticed by Sir Matthew Bourne himself, the director of the version of Swan Lake that the school perform in Swan Boy. He tweeted them I will be going to see the show they have developed based on the book next month, and I couldn't be more excited about it!
