Literary characters bring fun and learning on World Book Day 

By Jill Dando News

Pupils and teachers brought smiles to mark World Book Day.  

At Pawlett Primary School Academy near Bridgwater in Somerset, England there was a real buzz with pupils and staff dressing up.

They entered into their parts with enthusiasm, choosing to dress up in a range of different book characters from down the ages and including modern tales.

On World Book Day, children celebrate the love of reading.

World Book Day is celebrated nationally every year on the first Thursday of March.

The school, which has a history in the village over 150 years ago, is situated in incredibly stunning grounds with sports pitches, a forest school, adventure playground, and next door to a state-of-the-art community club with a 3G football pitch.

It has its own Jill Dando News Centre for pupils.

People across the world marked World Book Day alongside Pawlett. Amanda Holden dressed up as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz on Thursday morning.
