Welwyn Garden City primary school pupils swapped classroom lessons for bedtime stories as they celebrated the joys of reading.
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.
