World Book Day
A variety of book characters were at Thomas Willingale School and Nursery, Loughton, today as the school took part in World Book Day.
Headteacher Teresa Phillips said: "We saw an amazing array of costumes to celebrate World Book Day. The children (and parents) exceeded all our expectations and this year we saw the best costumes we have seen yet.
"The effort to hand-make costumes was exceptional!"
She added: "Reading and hearing stories is so important for all children, and days like these help us to enthuse and motivate with the children talking about their favourite books and characters and learning about new books they might like to try at the same time.
"The children are now going to participate in a Readathon to raise money for children's hospitals."
