Charsfield Primary School, like many across the region, had planned to mark World Book Day on Thursday, March 1.

However, the snowy weather that week meant the celebrations had to be put on hold for a week.

Undeterred, pupils and staff held their own World Book Day celebrations on Thursday, March 8, once the snow had subsided.

Pupils dressed as some of their favourite characters including superheroes, soldiers, skeletons and more.
