World Book Day brings stories to life

Pupils (and staff!) at St George's Junior School celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 7 March by dressing up as their favourite book characters and designing their own lanterns.

Characters from a wide range of literature burst into life, as children - and their teachers - took the form of their literary heroes. The children dressed up as characters from Harry Potter, the Wombles, Alice in Wonderland, a number of Roald Dahl stories, The Wizard of Oz and one child even dressed up as a crayon from popular children's book 'The Day the Crayons Quit'. There was also a very special visit from Winnie the Pooh himself - much to the excitement of the children.

As well as dressing up, each class designed their own wonderful literary-themed lanterns, working hard to create something truly magnificent and astounding. Curriculum Leader of Art & Design, Sara O'Connell, was tasked with judging the lanterns and found this to be a very tough task indeed.

The winners of the competition for each year group were:

Nursery - Zebra 2

Reception - Hedgehogs

Year 1 - Toucans

Year 2 - Starlings

Year 3 - J3.3

Year 4 - J4.4

Year 5 - J5.3

Year 6 - J6.4

Well done to all our amazing winners and to everyone who took part to create these memorable lanterns.It was another hugely successful, fun and entertaining World Book Day.
