Bringing stories to life

Bringing stories to life

PUPILS at Checkendon Primary School dressed as their favourite book characters as part of a week of activities.

They came to school as the Roald Dahl characters Matilda and the BFG and characters from books by comedian David Walliams.

Children were asked to bring in books about their favourite animals or how to take care of a pet.

They also created a display of their writing for parents to see.

Other events included a visit from author Debi Evans.

English co-ordinator Shelley Mottram said: “We had 74 children who all took part. They absolutely loved it.

“We had a real variety of characters and really fantastic feedback from our parents and children on their enthusiasm for writing and some really good pieces.”
