Book characters came to life for children at Orchards Primary in Wisbech when year three pupils had a vist from the Twits.

The visit fits in with their learning about Roald Dahl as an author as well as the centenary of his birthday.

The children were able to ask Mr and Mrs Twit lots of questions.

Thanks to the two teachers who were game and acted the parts perfectly.

Teacher Mrs Ketley said: “Year three have been learning about Roald Dahl in English this half term.
