A COLOURFUL celebration of literature has taken place at Badby Primary School.

All of the children and staff bought in their favourite stories and dressed up as some of their favourite heroes and heroines from books on Friday. This included Maid Marion, Paddington Bear and Professor Dumbledore from the Harry Potter novels.

The school’s headteacher Lyndsey Evans said: “All of the children were really excited and loved taking part.

“It engages the children with reading and encourages them to read a book they might not have read before.

“It was a good day.”
