More magic as books con­tinue to in­spire

Macclesfield Express - - WORLD BOOK DAY -

WE’VE been in­un­dated with your pic­tures of chil­dren tak­ing part in this year’s World Book Day so we’ve de­cided to pub­lish an­other gallery in this week’s pa­per.

Hun­dreds of chil­dren ar­rived at schools, nurs­eries and play­groups dressed as their favourite char­ac­ter for the an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of read­ing.

Teacher Rachel Mor­tishire-Smith, who teaches at Bosley Pri­mary School, said chil­dren and staff had lots of fun.

She said: “There were some very imag­i­na­tive cos­tumes which par­ents and chil­dren had gone to great ef­fort to make.

“We all pa­raded in the hall where best cos­tumes were judged, and chil­dren from all year groups vol­un­teered to be in­ter­viewed in the role of their char­ac­ter, which was very en­ter­tain­ing – from the vet James Her­riot, Peter and Su­san from the Chron­i­cles of Nar­nia and Anne of The Fa­mous Five, to Peter Rab­bit and Willy Wonka.”

Writer Henry Sam­son, who has pub­lished his own story called Fred­die’s Fly­ing Ad­ven­ture – in­clud­ing il­lus­tra­tions of Freddy fly­ing over Bosley and The Cloud – also came to school to read from his book.

He in­spired the chil­dren to write and il­lus­trate their own sto­ries for the rest of the day.y
