Chil­dren dress up for book day de­lights

Wilmslow Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
