PUPILS and staff at a Suffolk primary school looked like they had leapt from the pages of fairytales and stories as they dressed the part for World Book Day.
Framlingham Sir Robert Hitcham’s Primary School celebrated the annual event a week early by spending the day wearing the instantly recognisable outfits of their favourite book characters.
A cool collective of 007s mingled with a spell-binding selection of Harry Potters, while the staffroom teemed with pirates and witches - and even Cleopatra made an appearance.
It all made for a fun first Thursday back after half-term, with children bringing in a donation to contribute to the school’s effort raising funds to buy books for schoolchildren in Liberia.
Jenny Elphick, the school’s previous headteacher, is currently working as part of the missionary organisation SIM to develop and train teachers in Liberia.

The school marked World Book Day a week early as it plans to invite ‘Mums to Lunch’ throughout this week in celebration of Mother’s Day.
