To mark the 20th anniversary of the national celebration of literature, staff and students got into the spirit of things by dressing up as their favourite characters.

A band of teachers dressed as Oompa Loompas certainly caught the eye at Channing School, while over at Coldfall Primary School there were appearances from a Stormtrooper and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.

Clare Constant, who is acting head of Channing Junior School, said: “We have had some fabulous costumes for our World Book Day celebrations today.

“Everything from Captain Underpants to a troop of staff Oompa Loompas.

“The day started with a wonderful Reception book themed assembly followed by a fancy dress parade.

“In the afternoon the girls met their ‘secret storytellers’ who have inspired them to explore new books.

“The celebrations will continue next week with a reading from ‘Inspector Brunswick: The Case of the Missing Eyebrow’ by Angela Keoghan and Chris Lam Sam and an opportunity for book signing.

“We certainly love books at Channing.”
