There's Wally! Pupils dress up for World Book Day
Confusion reigned at a Poole primary school when children and staff dressed up as their favourite character to celebrate World Book Day.
Pupils turned up at Talbot Combined School in fancy dress and staff followed suit, joining in the fun, before a hunt was launched for the real Wally.
Headteacher Kate Curtis said she had been delighted by the “wonderful costumes” and “excellent effort pupils had made for this special event”.
She added: “Reading is crucial to everything we do here and it is fantastic to see children embracing the spirit of World Book Day. The parents and community have been so supportive of the children’s learning and celebration days show how learning can be brought to life.”
Big-hearted pupils are currently completing a sponsored read-a-thon to raise funds for Book Aid For Africa.
Forres Sandle Manor School in Fordingbridge was magically transported to an imaginary world on Thursday to mark World Book Day.
The pre-prep department enjoyed a colourful day, in full costume, with everyone from a swashbuckling pirate to Batman joining in the frivolity. Librarian Karen Spencer was kept busy at an all-day book sale.
Head of pre-prep Tracy Spottiswood: “We live and breathe books and stories; so it was wonderful to have an excuse to fully immerse ourselves in them.
“The children and staff came dressed up as their favourite characters and were then able to buy a book at our book fair as a treat, to remember the day.”
