Kentish Express Ashford & District - - JUNCTION 10 -

A PRI­MARY school has been busy teach­ing a host of fa­mous char­ac­ters in­clud­ing Harry Pot­ter, Cin­derella, Sleep­ing Beauty and Cap­tain Hook.

They turned up as part of In­ter­na­tional Book Week at the Lady Joanna Thornhill Pri­mary School in Wye, where pupils and teach­ers dressed up as their favourite book char­ac­ters.

Head teacher Kevin Grout, said: “All week long, the fo­cus was look­ing at a whole variety of chil­dren’s lit­er­a­ture to stim­u­late in­ter­est in read­ing and writ­ing .

“One of the books they had a spe­cial in­ter­est in was The Gruf­falo by Ju­lia Donaldson and Axel Sch­ef­fler. It’s about a lit­tle mouse us­ing his ini­tia­tive to keep him­self out of trou­ble with big­ger an­i­mals.

“It was re­ally pleas­ing to see young and older chil­dren shar­ing sto­ries to­gether.
