WHERE’S Wally, a Smurf, a witch, a pirate and a princess were all spotted at Long Lawford Primary School last week.

To coincide with National Children’s Book Week the school held a book week, the highlight of which was when staff and pupils came in dresses as their favourite character.

Headteacher Rob Morrissey, who dressed as Where’s Wally, said: “As a school we believe that reading is the key to lifelong learning. In recent years we have worked hard to create a strong reading culture in the school.

“We have invested in a fantastic school library, which we open to the children during the summer holidays. This year over 40 children took part in our summer reading challenge. We also look to promote books and reading through book fairs, author visits and book themed weeks. The children had great fun during the week and especially on our dressing up day. Parents and guardians were extremely supportive of the week and of the book fair we held each day.”
