Then, on Friday, March 6, Dales Park pupils were invited to dress up as a character from a book or story to get the children thinking and talking about their favourite books.

Commenting, Acting Head Teacher of Dales Park School Mrs Sandra Masson said: “It’s a great opportunity for the children to have fun and enjoy seeing a performance of Charlotte’s Web, a popular children’s story.

“This is one of the activities we’ve organised this week for World Book Day, an annual event that encourages children to read for pleasure.”
