Children dress up for book day delights
BOOK characters came to life at St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School when pupils and staff joined in the fun of World Book Day.
Headteacher Jane Gornell said: “Every child and member of staff came to school dressed as their favourite book character.
“The children have enjoyed a full week of activities based around books – including reading buddies where an older child supports a younger child, a book tournament and a big breakfast. This involves reading and discussing books over a drink of orange juice and a muffin.
“All year three, four, five and six have been given an abridged Shakespeare text to read as it is 400 years since the death of the world famous playwright.”
