Youngsters at the Holy Family Catholic Primary School wore their pyjamas and brought in their favourite books to read following on from World Book Day on March 7.

Classrooms were a sea of colourful onesies and other nightwear, much of which was inspired by the characters the children read about as they lost themselves in fictional worlds to celebrate ‘Book Week’.

A school spokesperson said: “The children spent the week studying one particular book, taking part in a variety of activities.

“We had a drama teacher in school and we participated in drama workshops linked to our books.
