Colourful costumes tell their own story
THERE was a spot of magic in the air at the Spring Grove School in Wye when children dressed as their favourite book characters for a book week.
There were wonderful wizards Harry Potter and Hermione at the Harville Road school – or, as they are better known to their friends, Jake Baldwin and Georgia Bird.
Lauren Ayton made sure she was in time dressed as the Mad Hatter while William Hobday and George Fennick transformed themselves into adventurers Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy.
The children were treated to storytelling sessions by Scottish author Janey Louise Jones who is responsible for the Princess Poppy collection of books.
Head teacher Bill Jones said: “The audience were transfixed by Holly Fielder’s hair-raising tale of a crocodile attack, they loved six-year-old Sophia Beaugie’s original story of a princess and laughed loudly as Lauren Ayton described her hilarious family camel ride.”
The winners of the competition were Albert Courage and Imogen Statinton.
