Despite needing to reschedule this event for the snow, everyone made a huge effort and remembered their costumes. It was lovely to see such a wide range of characters from different books, both old and new. These included Harry Potter and his various associates, Where’s Wally, Roald Dahl characters, Disney characters, Marvel Super Heroes, animals and numerous fairy tale characters. There were also many original one offs – including one pupil who came as the Tower of Sauron from “The Lord of the Rings.”
The dressing up gave the day a celebratory air, and helped us all remember to value and appreciate books. It also encouraged children to tell each other about which books they enjoy and why.
A group of Year 3 pupils also organised a “draw your favourite book character” competition for KS2 with homemade bookmarks and chocolates for prizes. It was really well run and they presented the winners with their prizes in the Good Work Assembly.
