Three pages of your World Book Day pho­tos

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

PINOCCHIO, Snow White and Ra­pun­zel were among the char­ac­ters fil­ing into schools across Macclesfield as part of World Book Day.

Chil­dren proudly wore cos­tumes de­pict­ing their favourite char­ac­ters for the an­nual event, which is aimed at get­ting kids in­ter­ested in read­ing.

It has be­come a bit of a con­test for par­ents to come up with a unique and ex­cit­ing cos­tume for their lit­tle ones, but Ex­press read­ers didn’t dis­ap­point, with dozens of proud par­ents send­ing in pic­tures of their kids look­ing adorable in their creations.

Chil­dren at Bro­ken Cross Pri­mary Academy also cel­e­brated with some fantastic cos­tumes.

As well as dress­ing up, they kicked off their day with a ‘book and a butty’, where par­ents and stu­dents en­joyed a sausage sand­wich and read to­gether.

New head­teacher Donna Lewis, who took over the role in Jan­uary, said: “The chil­dren ab­so­lutely loved it. There was a huge buzz about the school all day.

“It’s not a day about play­ing. They did cre­ative writ­ing and learned about the re­la­tion­ship be­tween read­ing and writ­ing, which is also a re­ally im­por­tant part of the day.”
