A Suffolk school’s snow-delayed World Book Day celebrations saw classrooms taken over by Paddington Bear, Mary Poppins and the Queen of Hearts - to name just a few of the character costumes on show.
Sir Robert Hitcham’s Primary School in Framlingham held the event after heavy snow stopped it happening on the official day - March 1.
Literacy co-ordinator Lora Cann said the event was “very successful” with 340 pupils and 30 staff dressing up.
“We had one of the 101 Dalmatians leading the school, Mary Poppins was in charge in the office and Burglar Bill, Cruella Deville, Mr Bump and Where’s Wally teaching in the classrooms – to name just a few.”
Mrs Cann said the pupils enjoyed dressing up, with characters from David Walliams’ books, proving most popular. Other activities included book scavenger hunts, paired reading, and writing stories.

The event raised £320 for Book Aid International.
