A STAR of Downton Abbey visited schoolchildren in Goring Heath.
Joanne Froggatt, who plays Anna Bates in the ITV period drama, spent Monday afternoon with pupils at the Oratory Preparatory School.
The actress held three hour-long sessions in which she played drama games, talked about her career and listened to the children give readings and talks.
The visit was designed to prepare the year 2 pupils for their forthcoming English Speaking Board junior introductory exam.
It was arranged by Froggatt’s best friend, Kate Walford, who teaches drama and dance at the school.
