The pages of children’s storybooks came alive at a March primary school when staff and pupils dressed up for World Book Week.
Author Pippa Goodhart, who is famous for penning the Winnie the Witch series of books, visited and spent time with each year group throughout the day.
There were competitions and challenges for the children to take part in all week long, such as a book treasure hunt, reading bingo, designing a book token and bookface - guessing which adult is holding a book in front of their face.
The week’s events were organised by Amy Ellis and Elizabeth Dowler, with the aim of raising the profile of reading.
Earlier in the year, the children took part in an extreme reading challenge, where they had to bring in photographs of themselves reading in a surprising place.

The school said they had a great response with the parents and children going to town with photographs of children reading books whilst hanging upside down over a toilet, sitting on top of a really high combine harvester, in a tank with a snake and up a tree, to name just a few.
