Selfie props helped students to get into character for World Book Day at Lynn Grove Academy.
The Gorleston high school’s library staged a variety of activities to encourage and inspire reading.
Some English reading classes were able to join in with a photo booth of book characters, have a talk with the owl handlers from Fritton Owl Sanctuary, take part in a Mad Hatter’s tea party and doodle at the Imagination Station.
During break and lunch time, the young ones were invited to have fun and games in the library, helped by cakes.
A theme of discovery was chosen to help children find their way to non-fiction and classic tales like Alice in Wonderland - the library stairs becoming a rabbit hole entrance to a tea party.

The Imagination Station was a place for pupils to discover illustration and they were able to create their own book token (and enter the World Book Day competition) or do some colouring in of one of Liz Pichon’s (author of Tom Gates’ books) illustrations.
Mrs Bowles said: “We are looking forward to our next event which is a visit from a World Slam Champion, poet Harry Baker, on March 16. We are also currently running our Easter Competition, Create a Cracking Egg Pun.”
