More magic as books continue to inspire
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
