Hundreds of storybook characters were brought to life in a celebration of literature.
Pupils and staff at Chipping Hill Primary School, in Witham, and Tabor Academy in Braintree dressed to impress as a way of marking World Book Day last Thursday.
Primary Year 6 teacher Paul Drury, who wore a Superman outfit, said: “It’s a real celebration of reading and it was very entertaining day.
“We had children dressed up in a whole range of costumes with face paints and wigs.
“It was brilliant.
“Everyone was running around saying who are you and it’s generated a lot of interest in reading.”
*BOTH EDITIONS OF THE BRAINTREE AND WITHAM TIMES WILL BE CARRYING A SPREAD OF PICTURES FROM BOTH SCHOOLS. CAN YOU SPOT YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER?
