School children across the Great Yarmouth area dressed up as their favourite characters for this year’s World Book Day.
Marked in more than 100 countries across the globe, World Book Day is an annual celebration of the beauty of reading.
After weeks of preparation from parents to ensure outfits were ready, youngsters donned their character attire and arrived at school to compare their efforts.
Some dressed up as their footballing icons, while others showed off their finest Disney princess dresses. The Enormous Crocodile was desperate for a bite to eat and Oompa Loompas could be seen at every turn.
Even teachers couldn’t help but join the fun, dressing up as the White Witch, the Mad Hatter and Snow White.
Check out our gallery featuring photos of children from Catfield Primary, Cobholm Primary, Fairhaven Primary, Great Yarmouth Primary Academy, Hemsby Primary, Lingwood Primary, Ludham Primary and Southtown Primary.
