The Gruffalo, The Cat in the Hat and Sherlock Holmes were just a few of the famous literary characters that children dressed up as for World Book Day at Malton Community Primary School on Friday.

The annual event, which is popular with schools across Ryedale, ended a Reading Week for the school on Highfield Road inspired by Earth, Wind, Fire and Water.

Children also took part in an Extreme Reading competition which saw photographs sent in of them reading books in unusual places, such as at the top of York Minster or in a cupboard at their home.

Becky Thompson, who is in charge of reading at the school, said: “The children really enjoyed it.”
