Accrington Observer - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

works of Roald Dahl were brought to life as part of a school read­ing day.

Tony Ped­ley gave a live read­ing of the BFG to pupils at Bax­en­den St John’s pri­mary school.

They also watched him per­form ‘A Taste of Dahl’ - a show where he re­called Dahl’s life and works.

Chil­dren across the school joined in a ‘We Love to Read’ day and each class worked on ac­tiv­i­ties themed around read­ing their favourite books.

Katie Ed­ward­son, of Bax­en­den St John’s, said: “In ad­di­tion to this, the Bax­en­den Read­ing Lead­ers also helped to ar­range a book swap.

“Many of the chil­dren across school brought in their favourite books from home to swap with their peers and we cer­tainly had a fab­u­lous range of lit­er­a­ture to choose from.

“Year 5 and 6 were also vis­ited by Zoe from the Lan­cashire Li­brary Ser­vice, who left us with a fan­tas­tic se­lec­tion of new books for our class li­braries.”
