A spy, an elf and a granny - but what made this Suffolk primary school’s World Book Day celebrations different from the rest?
Melton Community Primary School went down an unconventional route to celebrate World Book Day this year.
The school, which is made up of 177 pupils, asked the children to dress up as words rather than characters to add more of an educational element to the day.
It encouraged children to add to their vocabulary as they needed to learn the definition of the word before they could dress up as it.
Year 6 teacher Michael Burges said: “We asked the children to dress up as words to avoid the usual issue of people dressing up in football kits and fairy costumes.

“There is also more of a literacy element to it as the children need to know the definition of it.
“We had two girls come as the word identical, so they dressed the same; we had a boy come as the word espionage so dressed as a spy, and another who came as mislead and wore shorts and a T-shirt.
