All children and staff dressed-up as their favourite character from a book, short story or poem and then took to the catwalk for a really fun show! Our school theatre was a kaleidoscope of literary colours, complete with catwalk, lights, music and a judges' panel tasked with the difficult job of handing out prizes for the best costumes.
Everyone, from students to teachers, looked amazing. The children’s love of books shone through with some unique and really beautiful costumes: we had a VERY Hungry Caterpillar, Hetty Feather, Sherlock Holmes, the Tree House, Doctor Who, Gangsta Granny, the Suffragette, Horrible Histories, Too Many Animals...and many more!
