Helen Rhodes, the school’s Administrator, said: “It’s a cosy, wooden, hobbit-like cabin which provides a quiet space where children can retreat to curl up with a good book.

“It’s fantastic and I’m sure our children will love it.”

She added: “The Reading Pixie lives there and will be encouraging children to develop a love of reading.”
