The snow didn't stop the children enjoying World Book Day in Alderley Edge with many celebrating by dressing up as their favourite literary characters.
At Alderley Edge Community Primary School Headteacher Mr Perry dressed as Percy the Park Keeper and read the story 'Percy's Bumpy Ride' to the whole school at the start the day with the children following the story on the big screen.
Mr Perry said "The day was all about celebrating the children's favourite stories and encouraging each other to read a new book. The children's outfits looked brilliant too."
Head Teacher, Mrs Julia Langford, Head Teacher at The Ryleys School said: ""It's been wonderful to see the children make such an effort for World Book Day, despite the wintery weather! They all look absolutely brilliant and have thoroughly enjoyed getting into character and taking part in a range of book related activities."
At Alderley Edge School for Girls the Junior School celebrated World Book Day by joining in with the Share a Story theme.
Mrs Kate Sherville-Payne said "There are so many fabulous new books for primary age children to enjoy at the moment, so all of the girls were asked to buy a new book to read over the half-term holiday. This book was then to be gift-wrapped so that it could be passed on to someone else in their class on World Book Day. The book will then be read by its recipient, before being returned to school for donation to the Junior School library, which is to be refurbished in the summer.
Each class marked the occasion by swapping books and with their own activities such as writing book reviews or a new blurb for their book; creating a new cover or analysing the characters.
Mrs Suzi Edginton said "We also asked the girls if they would like to Wear a Hat for the day for Brain Tumour Research, and the girls were happy to wear hats, some of which reflected the characters from their books, in return for a £2 donation. Some were very creative, as you can see! A super celebration all around!."
