World Book Day celebrations saw a host of favourite characters come to life at West Norfolk schools.

Staff and pupils at Walpole Cross Keys and Terrington St John primary schools dressed as their favourite characters and also shared stories last Thursday.

Children at Cross Keys paraded in their costumes and the staff and children read stories to each other.

At Terrington St John, there was a special assembly with a costume parade and later, the older children teamed-up with younger pupils and took turns to read their favourite books to each other.

The children also brought their favourite books into school.

Children and staff at Anthony Curton Primary School in Walpole St Peter and Tilney All Saints Primary celebrated World Book Day in style.

Youngsters dressed as their favourite characters, including The Gruffalo and Harry Potter. 

Executive headteacher, Dawn Liddle said: “The two schools had so much fun with the book characters, who had swapped places with our children for the day. 

“Their costumes were amazing.”

Staff at Morrisons King’s Lynn store helped pupils at Middleton Academy when they presented some books to the school library.

Sara Turmaine, the store’s community champion, said: “I’m delighted to be donating these new books to a local school. 

“There’s a great selection and I hope every pupil will be able to find a story they will enjoy.”

The donation was part of a partnership between the Morrisons Foundation and the National Literary Trust.

As a result of the partnership, every Morrisons store across the country donated books to a school within its community.
