Cranborne Primary School has had an inspiring day of literary celebration despite Storm Emma’s best efforts.
Originally planned for Thursday, March 1, all of the school’s World Book Day activities had to be put on hold when freezing temperatures caused them to take a snow day.
But by Wednesday March 7, the kids were raring to go in their costumes.
A special assembly held by the school was filled to the brim with eager characters such as Where’s Wally, the Mad Hatter, Veruca Salt, and even Sophie from The Tiger Who Came to Tea - who came equipped with her own batch of tiger food.
World Book Day is an annual celebration of all things to do with reading, writing and illustrating.
