Leiston Primary School celebrating World Book Day 2017


Where’s Wally, Goldlocks and The Tiger Who Came to Tea took over schools across Suffolk last week as they celebrated World Book Day.

We have photos from schools across Ipswich and the rest of Suffolk which we will be publishing in a special supplement on Tuesday, March 14.

The pictures show hundreds of children proudly dressed as their favourite story characters – with some very unique home-made costumes produced by talented parents and grandparents.

Even teachers got in on the act and went to school in costume, encouraging children to engage with literature and further their reading skills.

Classrooms were filled with children in Elsa dresses, Willy Wonka outfits and even covered in orange face paint to turn them into Oompa Loompas.

Did your school take part? What did your child dress as? Don’t miss the special pull-out-and-keep supplement to see if their school contributed a photo.
