Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning

Billy Bear struts his stuff at Strictly!

Our Ladybird class mascot Billy Bear got a real treat this weekend when one of our pupils took him to the Strictly Come Dancing studios for a visit. 

St Stephens pupil Freddie, along with his cousin Amelia, took Billy round to meet all the stars when they visited the BBC studios as part of the production's 'Kids' Day' at Elstree Studios in Borehamwood.

Billy even got the chance to sit in the judges' seats, normally graced by the likes of Darcey Bussel, Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas and Bruno Tonioli, and to meet Strictly present Tess Daly. We heard he gave all the acts 10 out of 10!

This year CBeebies star Dr Ranj - who presents 'Get Well Soon' - as I'm sure many of you already know, is a contestant on the show so Freddie and Amelia must have really enjoyed posing for a photo with him and contestant Graeme Swann, the England cricketer.

Billy was also snapped having cuddles with lots of other starts of the show including TV presenter Stacey Dooley, dancer Giovanni Pernice and YouTube star Joe Sugg.

I'm sure Billy Bear will have to put his feet up this week after all that excitement!
