Fictional Characters Come Alive On Book Day

Pilgrim Academy Year 2 children celebrate World Book Day dressed as characters from books that were made into films. Pictured are (l-r) Jacob Clark, Mia Goodwin, Lexi Hynes, Esme Crockett, Olivia Emery, Corey Binnon and Phoebe Hickson.


'From Book To Film' was the theme of World Book Day at Pilgrim Academy where children celebrated the occasion by dressing up as their favourite characters.

All classes chose different books and completed activities centred around their chosen book throughout the day. Examples of books chosen included Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and Gangsta Granny.

Children from Years 5 and 6 visited Tollbar Academy, where reading workshops were led by the Sixth Form pupils. Year 2 pupils visited Reynolds Academy to complete reading activities and discuss their chosen books and characters.

Andy Clark, Principal of Pilgrim Academy said: "We encouraged the children to share their chosen book with other pupils across the school throughout the day to continue to promote a love of reading and sharing stories."
