Bourne Abbey Primary was awash with Little Red Riding Hoods, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dees, several Harry Potters and Alice in Wonderlands all last week.

Pupils also dressed up as a host of other fictional characters to mark World Book Day which was extended to a whole week at the Academy.

Books were brought to life through a range of activities including dance and movement incorporating themes from popular books.

Pupils danced their way through The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Where the Wild Things Are and The Butterfly Lion.

They also made their own stories with picture sequencing and Gruffalo themed learning, created their own Wild Things, made 3D books and swapped books.

And for the finale, pupils and staff dressed up as their favourite book character.

A spokesman said: “The colourful costumes were amazing and they all looked stunning.

“The staff metamorphosed into characters ranging from Willy Wonka to friends of Christopher Robin via Where’s Wally.

“A huge thanks to parents and carers who helped make the week such a success.”

UNESCO’s World Book Day, on March 6, aimed at celebrating books and encouraging a love of reading, is marked in more than 100 countries .
