ST Lawrence Primary School celebrated World Book Day last Friday by dressing up as characters from stories.

The children put together their costumes becoming their favourite storybook hero or heroine. Wigs, capes, crowns and face-paint all made appearances and some children even went so far as to construct particular props for their characters.

In the morning, the school gathered to celebrate books and the joy of reading, and throughout the day, individual classes shared their favourite stories and explored new books together.

The day was much enjoyed by all who participated.
