Students dress up for book week
SCHOOLCHILDREN have dressed as their favourite character for book week.
Youngsters from King's School and Nursery, on Hartley Road, in Mannamead, have taken part in the event. Each class focused on a book and then dressed up at the end of the week as a character.
Jane Lee, headteacher of King's School and Nursery, together with her teaching staff, also went as their own favourite character.
Mrs Lee said: "Throughout this week, classes from King's School have each focused upon a particular book.

"These have included Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown, The Hobbit by J R R Tolkein and James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl."
The week ended in a dress-up day where the children got into the spirit of the week by dressing as their favourite book characters.
There was a wide variety of dress ups, including Cat in the Hat, Willy Wonka, an Umpa Lumpa, Mr Tickle, The Hobbit and Alice in Wonderland.
"Our book week encourages children to read and enjoy books; it can open up a fantasy world in which children can lose themselves.
"We were delighted that so many children took part," Mrs Lee added.
