Potters GATE Primary School and St Andrew’s Infant School kicked off the Farnham Literary Festival in spectacular style with World Book Day.

The children brought many popular book characters to life, while staff at both schools dressed as their favourite Mr. Men characters.

During the week, children from both schools were treated to a visit from Sarah McIntyre, author and illustrator of Grumpycorn and Adventure Mice – Otter Chaos.

Reading corners in every class across both schools have recently been upgraded and improved.

A spokesman for the two schools said: “It was wonderful to see so many children enjoying the books on offer and developing their love of reading and stories.”
