Daleks, superheroes, wizards and fairies were just some of the characters pupils dressed up as at schools in Crowthorne to mark World Book Day.
Staff and children at Oaklands Junior School, in Butler Road, enjoyed an assembly from Where’s Wally, also known as teacher Mr Lee, on Thursday.
Headteacher Sue Charnley said: “Throughout the day the children participated in a range of activities to develop their love of reading, including taking part in a book exchange.
“They also listened to others discuss their favourite book and wrote story extracts and tweets.”
A stationery cupboard was transformed into Miss Trunchbull’s ‘chokey’ from Roald Dahl’s Matilda by secretary Sue Pascoe at Hatch Ride Primary School, in Hatch Ride, on Friday.
Mrs Pascoe said: “It was fantastic, all the staff were dressed up. Year Five wrote and made their own books, Year Four wrote a biography on their favourite author and Year Two pupils wrote fairy stories.”
World Book Day is an annual event designed to help promote books and reading.
