"It was a tight slot because they only had an hour to spare before he was going to London.
"He wasn't time conscious at all, he was lovely, really down to earth."
The unit leader said the star of movies such as Frost/Nixon and The Damned United read the children a story known as Harry's Home about a boy who goes away for the first time and stays with his grandad on a farm.
She said: "He was down to their level and sang with them.
"Although the children are very young and don't quite understand who he is we got them to call him Michael Sheen.
"He was very normal."
