Romford children dress up for National Book Week
THERE were plenty of colourful characters from literature as youngsters at a school dressed up as the characters from their favourite books as part of National Book Week.
The students from Crowlands Primary School in London Road, Romford donned themselves in the costumes of the fictional characters as part of the national event on Friday November 19.
Teacher Cathy Chaplin said: “It was a good week because the children really enjoyed it.
“It just gets them interested in books and it gave us a opportunity to encourage the children to get a love of reading.”
During the week, the reception children aged four and five also read a book called Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman.
