OSCARS were handed out to pupils who excelled in various disciplines at a special black-tie event at West Walton Community Primary School on Friday.
The ceremony marked the end of the school’s 5th Annual Literacy Festival, which began on January 28.
Geoffrey Wareham, the Mayor of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, was on hand to hand out awards.
During the festival authors visited the school to carry out storytelling workshops with the children, while drama groups came along to help them come up with plots.
Awards were handed out for best character, best storyteller, best setting, best plot and best overall work.

“At the school we have a sharp focus on reading and writing so events like this help promote that.”
