Happy ending for World Book Day
CHILDREN from schools across Royston yesterday (Thursday) entered a new chapter of learning for World Book Day.
Youngsters at Roman Way First took the chance to dress up as some of their favourite literary characters and talk about their most loved novels.
Harry Potter, pirates and princesses were all represented and teachers also got in on the act.
Emma Edwards, headteacher, said: “For World Book Day all of the pupils and staff at Roman Day dressed up to celebrate their favourite stories and characters.
“We had previously spent time reading our favourite stories to each other, everyone had great fun and enjoyed talking about their characters.”
